Scratched tonight: Chris Drury (finger), Vinny Prospal (knee), Michal Rozsival (knee), and one of Todd White (healthy) / Derek Boogaard (hand).

STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: The Rangers came away with a very gratifying win in Pittsburgh on Monday night. Although the questionable officiating affected the Rangers, they showed team unity in a way we have not seen in years to overcome a 2-1 deficit while shorthanded. They will try to ride that momentum tonight against Boston for Heritage Night, when the Rangers will wear their new third jerseys for the first time this season. Boston has been carried by unreal goaltending. No, those number for Tim Thomas are not typos. That’s some absurd goaltending.

CRAZY THOUGHT: The Rangers manage to put 4 goals on the board against Thomas.
