Rangers-Canadiens preview


           Blueshirts are aiming for first four-game winning streak in 88 games tonight versus Habs at Garden. Henrik Lundqvist will start for NY, assuming Carey Price for Montreal in All-Star goalie battle.

           Rangers are 8-2-2 in last 12, Rangers: 25-15-3 (53 pts) overall;
Canadiens: 23-16-3 (49 pts). 

           If you're going to the game, like me, and are concerned about getting home as soon as possible afterward to avoid the brunt of the snowstorm, this is sobering: Each of the last four Canadiens games have gone into overtime (3-0-1).

          Unclear if former Coyote Wojtek Wolski will play;  Kris Newbury skated in optional this morning; Wolski hadn't arrived.  We'll know more around 5 p.m.
