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.

Player To Watch:

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.
