The forward lines John Tortorella put together for Thursday's practice in Tampa will start tonight's game in Sunrise against the Panthers, who have lost two straight at home to the Penguins and Bruins.
Dubinsky-Stepan-Gaborik; Fedotenko-Boyle-Callahan; Prust-Anisimov-Frolov and Avery-Christensen-White. Derek Boogaard (shoulder) is out.
Tortorella has a simple hope for tonight: "Start better." The Rangers were blown out in Tampa, despite the 5-3 final.
Couple of stumbling power play units here tonight: Rangers are 17th in the league at 16.3 percent (14-for-86) and 4-for-28 over the last eight games; Panthers are 30th at a paltry 7.2 percent (5-for-69), 0-for-27 over the last seven.
