The New York Rangers will be looking to end their four game losing streak tonight as they take on the Calgary Flames at Madison Square Garden. Derick Brassard will be making his return to the lineup tonight after he sat out last game with a lower-body injury. The Rangers may be going with seven defensemen tonight, as Alain Vigneault confirmed that his lineup still wasn't set as of 5:00 PM. Henrik Lundqvist will start for the Rangers, while Karri Ramo will make his second start in two nights for the Flames.

Brassard missed last game with a lower-body injury, and the Rangers sorely missed his play making ability. With him back in the lineup tonight, I expect him to make an impact in the offensive zone for the Rangers.
