Captain Chris Drury returns for the Rangers' last game tonight. Gilroy moves back to defense at the expense of Eminger who is a healthy scratch. Sean Avery is also a healthy scratch (sixth time this season), Mats Zuccarello returns to the lineup.
Gilroy comes out of the lineup for the first time since Jan. 2. Defenseman Steve Eminger and left wing Sean Avery will be back in the lineup... Wolski will be a healthy scratch for the first time in 28 games since being acquired from the Coyotes... Prust says he's good to go tonight. No surprise.
"You can say it's a lack of preparation, but that's BS; it's a lack of competitiveness. I don't have the explanation for it. I don't know if it's us not holding each other accountable, or what, but it's a total lack of respect for our fans and the organization. It's a joke."

Sean Avery said he would make the trip to DC for the last pre-season game and would continue treatment. The LW said he had no timetable for when he would skate. Dubinsky will start as No. 1 center vs. Caps; Prospal will roll between C and LW, says Tortorella.
"We got two hot meals a day, we got a great practice facility, we got limos flying all over the place, we got New York City, the theaters, I need this, I need that, it’s time to put your hand, instead of asking for more, take it away and start getting things done."
