The New York Rangers (27-28-12, 66 points) have been on the road and return home tonight for a contest vs. a depleted New Jersey Devils (25-34-9, 59 points) squad before heading to Western Canada. The Blueshirts are in the middle of a six game losing streak, and are 2-2-4 in their last 10 games played. The Devils are 3-6-1 in their last 10, and currently sit 28th (fourth- worst) in the league.

New York last played the Red Wings in which Pavel Buchnevich scored two goals, but the team fell in the shootout.

The Devils were shutout on Friday night 3-0 vs. the Washington Capitals. Marc Staal is battling the flu, and he will be out of the lineup tonight.

With Staal out and Kevin Shattenkirk back in, here are your projected lineups.
