Madison Square Garden

The New York Rangers will finish out their mini home stand tonight as the take on the Detroit Red Wings at Madison Square Garden. The Rangers are coming off of a frustrating loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning just 48 hours ago, and it wasn't for a lack of effort. They need to carry over their momentum to tonight's game, and hopefully finish up 3-1 before heading into Ottawa on Saturday. Henrik Lundqvist is expected to get the start once again, while Jimmy Howard will start for the Wings.

Dan Girardi is finally showing some signs of himself these past few weeks, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Him and Ryan McDonagh have solidified themselves as the number one pairing once again, and they've been doing some damage. I feel another big game from Danny G tonight.
