It’s Go Time!

Game 10. [2]
Islanders at Rangers.

First meeting of the season in the luke-warm rivalry.

(Let’s face it, the Rangers have much [3]bigger rivalries with the Devils, Flyers, Penguins and even Capitals right now).

Brian Boyle, one of the “scared or tentative” players coach John Tortorella mentioned after the loss in Newark Tuesday, will be prucha’d along with Stu Bickel.

Captain Ryan Callahan returns to the lineup, but Dan Girardi remains out. J.T. Miller and Darroll Powe make their Garden debuts as Rangers. Steve Eminger replaces Bickel on defense.

Henrik Lundqvist starts his ninth game in goal.

The Islanders will be without tough guy Matt Carkner, who was a villain in last spring’s Rangers-Senators playoff series. Or a hero, I supposed, depending on which horse you had in that race.

Please vote for the Three Rangers Stars at the end of the game, in the poll over there on the left <————

and follow me on Twitter: @rangersreport.

Also, I need a bunch more volunteers to do the Three Rangers Stars for my morning reviews. Anybody interested, please drop me an email at rcarpini@lohud.com.
