Steve Zipay takes you inside the locker room, home and on the road, with the New York Rangers, and also writes about the NHL, off and on the ice.

Lundqvist starting 8th straight tonight; same lineup

Eight is really no big deal, in fact, Henrik Lundqvist laughed it off.

As for the lineup, no Scott, Woywitka, Eminger again. Torts basically said Tim Erixon was okay in his five games here and was sent down to the AHL to play.

The Rangers will be wearing Heritage jerseys tonight....the lines in practice were:

Hagelin-Richards-Gaborik; Dubinsky-Boyle-Callahan; Feds-Stepan-Anisimov; Rupp-Mitchell-Prust. Same d pairs: McDonagh-Girardi, Staal-Stralman, Del Zotto-Bickel. So Boyle, three goals in four games, and Stepan switched.

Pitt-Buffalo tonight for the scoreboard watchers.

Gotta run, more later.....
