After defeating the Tampa Bay Lightning just two nights ago, the New York Rangers will look to make it two in a row tonight against the Florida Panthers. Both Marc Staal and Anton Stralman will be making their returns to the lineup after recovering from their respective injuries.
As a result, Michael Del Zotto and Justin Falk will be the healthy scratches tonight, with Conor Allen earning a spot on the roster as well. Henrik Lundqvist will get the start for the Rangers, and Tim Thomas is the expected started for the Florida Panthers.

Rick Nash finally scored last game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, and looked a lot better than he has been in previous games. Maybe that's the type of confidence booster he needed, and I feel another big game from him tonight.
