Just 24 hours after they topped the Minnesota Wild 4-1, the New York Rangers will go right back at it tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs have been struggling as of late, and so have the Rangers, so tonight will be an interesting test. The HBO cameras will be in the building as well, as both the Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings are being followed by HBO's 24/7. Cam Talbot will be getting his second consecutive start tonight for the Rangers, while Jonathan Bernier will start for the Maple Leafs.
Player To Watch:
#16 / Center / New York Rangers

Derick Brassard got going against last night against the Wild, and picked up an assist on a beautiful centering pass to Mats Zuccarello. The Rangers need Brassard to find his game if they are going to rebound from this horrible home stand. I think he has another big game tonight.
