Live from Raleigh: Christensen at C, Dubi on LW


                 Brandon Dubinsky on the wing?

                 With the Rangers thin at center without Vinny Prospal, who is out at least two weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery, coach John Tortorella experiments by starting Erik Christensen at center for Marian Gaborik and Dubinsky on the left. Christensen had no points in seven games since being claimed off waivers from Anaheim on Dec. 2. 

                The rest of the lines:





RANGERS 1, CANES 1, end of 1


Teams traded power play goals, with Joni Pitkanen credited with one that Lundqvist appeared to knock across the line while on his back

during a 4 on 3 at 11:08. A goal on a long Girardi shot was was waved off at 9:53 when he collided with Cam Ward. Erik Christensen scored his first of the year with a rebound from the right circle off a Gaborik slapper from the high slot during a 5 on 3. Rangers lead 14-5 in shots
