Henrik Lundqvist will make his 5th straight start.
Meanwhile, Chris Drury skated for the third straight day and, for the first time since suffering a concussion he went through contact drills after Tortorella put his team through a non-optional morning skate (typically Tortorella prefers optional morning skates, particularly as the season progresses).
Pregame notes from the Rangers:
Marian Gaborik leads the Rangers with 11 goals and 18 points in 22 career regular season games against Columbus; Michal Rozsival leads all Ranger defensemen with five assists and six points in seven career appearences vs. the Blue Jackets.
