Rangers @ Maple Leafs: The Rubber Match

New, comments

 

7PM ET: CBC, NHLNET (US)

The New York Rangers make a return visit to the Air Canada Center tonight, marking the third time this month the two teams have met.  The Leafs took the first game in the series 4-3, with Phil Kessel scoring a powerplay goal in overtime for the victory.  The second meeting was in Toronto, and the Rangers were prepared with a completely different game plan.  Martin Biron stood on his head and held on for a 2-1 win.

There will be a few lineup changes for the Leafs tonight.  Kris Versteeg is not 100% but will suit up anyways on the second line.  Carl Gunnarsson swaps press box duty with Brett Lebda.  And Christian Hanson will take Mike Zigomanis' place as the fourth line center.  Todd White will be out tonight for the Rangers, replaced by Evgeni Grachev.

Key Injuries:

TOR - Colby Armstrong

NYR - Chris Drury, Marian Gaborik, Vinny Prospal

 

Jean-Sebastien Giguere will get the start tonight across from Henrik Lundqvist.
