Ya boys no longer on a losing streak … and everybody but them looking ahead to Pittsburgh and Sid the Skid Crosby Thursday. So I guess this is not a Must-win game.
Henrik Lundqvist is down with the flu, so Martin Biron starts in goal and Chad (Ochocinco) Johnson dresses as his backup.
Ryan Callahan (foot) and Michael Del Zotto (hip) remain out day to day. Mats Zuccarello remains in, as the Rangers go with the same lineup they used Sunday vs. the Islanders. That means John Scott and Jeff Woywitka are prucha’d. Sean Avery remains soon-to-be-retired.
Marc Staal plays against his brother, Eric … yes, that’s his brother. And Jeff Skinner used to be a ballerina or figure skater or synchronized swimmer or gymnast or something. I forget.
