It’s Go Time!

Game 9. [2]
Rangers at Devils.

Rematch of the Eastern Conference finals, and the first meeting since the Devils won Game 6 in OT as the [3]Rangers did snow angels around Henrik Lundqvist’s crease.

Both teams are 4-4, but the Devils have three Bettman Bonus Points.

Lundqvist starts in goal against Martin Brodeur for the 34th time (regular season) in their careers. Lifetime, Lundqvist is 23-6-5, 1.73, .935 and five shutouts in regular-season games against Brodeur.

Looks as if Dan Girardi will not play. He took a day off from practice Monday, and was not in warmups this evening. So Anton Stralman moves up and Matt Gilroy and Stu Bickel play on defense.

J.T. Miller, the first-round pick from 2011, and newly-acquired Darroll Powe will make their Rangers debuts. Chris KreiderĀ  returns from an ankle injury. Steve Eminger is prucha’d.

Earlier in the day the Rangers reassigned Brandon Mashinter to Connecticut (AHL). He had been called up in the event that Powe did not arrive in time and Kreider was unavailable.
