Live game thread, Rangers-Panthers


            The Panthers are wrapping up a four-games in six-nights stretch, but are hot, with 23 goals in the last five and are 5-1-1. Stephen Weiss has scored in five of the six and 11 of 13. He and Nathan Horton have 37 points. The Rangers, meanwhile, are 0-4-1 and 1-7-1 at home in the last nine, although they have a three-game road winning streak.  

             Starters: Lundqvist, his 11th straight,  versus Tomas Vokoun.

              Lines: Higgins-Anisimov-Callahan, and a switch on D, Rozsival and Del Zotto, which means Staal-Girardi at least early...

            As noted, Christensen and Voros are healthjy scratches....

              RANGERS 1, PANTHERS 1, END OF 1

             After the Carolina game, Henrik Lundqvist was speaking about the importance of timely goals, and the Rangers got another one tonight, this time from Chris Drury, his third in four games, just 2:13 after Victor Oreskovich scored for Florida. Dan Girardi was hit on the left knee by a hard shot on the first Panthers PP at 7:36 and far as I could tell, did not return...Shots are 10-9 Panthers...Gaborik has three. Panthers have done a good job of blocking shots, credited with 10. Drury has won six of eight faceoffs...
