The New York Rangers will finally go back to work tonight as they welcome in the Pittsburgh Penguins, who's lineup is pretty injury-riddled at the moment. Alain Vigneault elected to make a few tweaks to his lineup tonight as Dylan McIlrath, and Taylor Pyatt will be healthy scratches in favor of Justin Falk, and Arron Asham. Henrik Lundqvist will be getting the start for the New York Rangers, will Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start for the Penguins.

Player To Watch:

Derek Stepan

#21 / Center / New York Rangers

Derek Stepan finally showed some signs of life during the last game against the Calgary Flames. He had a handful of scoring chances all throughout the game, but they simply weren't breaking in his favor. I expect a big game from him tonight against the Pens.
