This could get nasty. Insert standard "my bloody Valentine" pun here.

FLYERS (24-20-10) at RANGERS (31-18-6)

The Rangers will be wearing their road whites.

With no Michael Del Zotto for the Flyers due to an upper body injury that could be keeping him out "probably weeks", we will see another familiar face today. Former Islander Andrew MacDonald has been recalled from the AHL and will be plugged into the blue line for the Flyers today in the first game since the infamous exchange between Ryan McDonagh and Wayne Simmonds that resulted in a concussion for the Blueshirts' captain.

As expected, no Rick Nash or McDonagh for tonight's game at the Garden. Derick Brassard and Dan Girardi missed yesterday's practice with a maintenance day but are expected in the lineup tonight.

Mike's Player to Watch: Dominic Moore

Moore had a very strong game against the Kings on Friday night and created a few quality scoring chances thanks to a few great moves combined with some great individual effort. The Rangers' depth and their players who can play a physical game need to be a factor tonight at the Garden and Dominic Moore is almost certainly the most intelligent and important of the bunch.

Happy Valentine's Day! Let's go Rangers.
