The New York Rangers will head into Massachusetts this afternoon for a Thanksgiving Showdown against the Boston Bruins. After defeating the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night, the Rangers will be going into today's game with a bit of confidence. As for the Bruins, they are coming off of a blowout loss at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings, so they will likely be seeking some revenge against the Rangers.

Henrik Lundqvist is expected to get the start for the Rangers, while it's assumed that Tuukka Rask will start at the opposite end for the Bruins. Alain Vigneault usually doesn't tweak with a lineup that wins, so I'd assume Michael Del Zotto will continue to remain a healthy scratch today as well.

The full lineup for today's game can be found below.
