The New York Rangers will go right back at it tonight in search of their second home win during this home stand, this time against the Minnesota Wild. Henrik Lundqvist will be getting the night off tonight as he takes a mental break, and Cam Talbot will finally be back between the pipes for the Rangers. Talbot has given the Rangers some stability in net, and the Rangers seem to play a lot more defensive in front of him for some reason. Hopefully tonight will be another one of those nights.

As mentioned above, for whatever reason, the New York Rangers have been playing very well in front of Cam Talbot as of late. They seem more defensively sound, and limited their opponent's all game long. It'll be interesting to see if they can do that again tonight.
