Scratched tonight: Vinny Prospal (knee), Ryan Callahan (hand), Derek Boogaard (concussion symptoms), Erik Christensen (knee), Alex Frolov (knee), Brandon Dubinsky (leg), Ruslan Fedotenko (shoulder), Brodie Dupont (healthy), and Dan Girardi (ribcage).

STATE OF THE BLUESHIRTS: Beat up. Bruised. Hurting. On a stretcher. I think that pretty much sums up the Rangers right now. MDZ and Grachev make their Rangers “returns” as call ups for the newly injured Brandon Prust and Dan Girardi. Prust is a game time decision, but will likely play, but Girardi won’t. This means Grachev will still sit, and MDZ will be playing tonight.

CRAZY THOUGHT: Avery gets a Gordie Howe hat trick
