The New York Rangers will welcome in their crosstown rivals tonight as they take on the New York Islanders at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers are winners of three straight coming into tonight, and they will look to extend their winning streak to four. As for the Islanders, they are coming off of an emotional shootout victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. Henrik Lundqvist will not dress tonight as he became ill last night, which means Cam Talbot will get the nod for the Rangers. David LeNeveu signed a two-way deal with the Rangers earlier today, and will serve as tonight's backup.
Player To Watch:
Nash scored twice against the Washington Capitals on Sunday evening, and he continues to look better each and every game. I expect another big game from Rick Nash tonight.
