New, comments

Al Bello

After two days of some downtime, the New York Rangers will finally be back in action tonight against the rival Pittsburgh Penguins. Ryan Callahan will be making his long awaited return to the lineup, and J.T. Miller will come out of the lineup in favor of him. As far as the rest of the lineup goes, all other lines and defensive pairings will remain as they did during the last two games.

As for the Penguins, they will be without Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang tonight as they continue to battle the injury bug as of late. Marc-Andre Fleury will be getting the start for the Penguins in net, and Henrik Lundqvist will be starting his third consecutive game for the Rangers.
