It’s Go Time!

Game 4. [2]
Rangers at Flyers.

The Rangers come off their first win of the season, 4-3 in OT over Boston Wednesday night; the Flyers are winless (0-3) so far, and steaming. [3]

They are also banged up, with Scott Hartnell and Brayden Schenn out, and it looks like thugs Jody Shelley and Tom Sestito will play (shocker) tonight.

First of five meetings this season. The Rangers were 6-0 vs. Philly last season, when Lockout Commissioner Gary Bettman decided it would be a good idea to light up the Empire State Building in Orange to honor the Flyers and Mr. Snider, et al. They have won eight in a row vs. the Orange Crud overall.

Arron Asham (groin) will not play, and it appears Chris Kreider will be a healthy scratch; Matt Gilroy will also be prucha’d. The Rangers recalled Kris Newbury from Connecticut of the AHL to play in Kreider’s spot, which means Stu Bickel remains at forward and Steve Eminger is the sixth D-man.

Henrik Lundqvist starts his fourth straight game in goal.
