It's Lundqvist vs. Brodeur in goal
Rookie D Stu Bickel remains on third pair with Marc Staal. Steve Eminger is a healthy scratch again
Here are the lines from practice (we're waiting for warmups) but note Carl Hagelin dropped: Me, I'd drop Fedotenko to the fourth line and move Hagelin, who had points in five of his last seven games, up.
Artem Anisimov-Derek Stepan-Marian Gaborik
Brandon Dubinsky-Brad Richards-Brandon Prust
Ruslan Fedotenko-Brian Boyle-Ryan Callahan
Mike Rupp-John Mitchell- Hagelin
But of course, Tortorella changes things up during the game, so.....
Thius is the third game of the six-game season series and first at MSG this year.
The Rangers are 33-12-5. The Devils are 30-19-3 and have won four straight. Ilya Kovalchuk (22 goals, 28 assists) has three goals and seven assists in his last four games.
