Rangers at Montreal: 5th Place at Stake
With a win tonight in Montreal the New York Rangers will move into a tie for 5th place in the Eastern Conference.
The Rangers have a morning skate in Montreal at 11:30am.
Henrik Lundqvist will be in net for the Rangers tonight, hoping to get a win against the Habs, having lost the last three starts against Montreal (allowing 16 goals in those 3 games). Carey Price, who has had a subpar season, will be back between the pipes for Montreal after getting the last game off.
With a 4-1 win against the Flyers on Sunday, I don't expect the lines to change at all. Tortorella will probably continue his policy of talkint to the media at 5pm on game day and not after the morning skate.
According to Ranger Rants, here are the lines for tonight (no changes):
Sean Avery-Scott Gomez-Nikolai Zherdev
Markus Naslund-Chris Drury-Nik Antropov
Fredrik Sjostrom-Brandon Dubinsky-Ryan Callahan
Lauri Korpikoski-Blair Betts-Colton Orr
Marc Staal-Dan Girardi
Paul Mara-Michal Rozsival
Wade Redden-Derek Morris
