Martin Biron will likely play the entire game.
STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: After a 4-1 start to the preseason, the Rangers are looking to end the preseason on a high(er) note tonight against Ottawa. It feel strange to say this, but the positional battles at camp have been very exciting to watch, and has many fans buzzing about the Rangers this year. The fourth line has been solid, the offense has been balanced, the penalty has been the status quo (solid), and the powerplay has been clicking. Dale Weise and Mats Zuccarello-Aasen are up for tonight’s game, taking the place of Ryan Callahan and Marian Gaborik, who are out for rest. The final cuts will be made tomorrow, and the decision has definitely not been an easy one for the Rangers coaching staff.
CRAZY THOUGHT: Valentenko scores.
