NY Rangers Game 29 Open Thread: Another date with Vegas

What happens here, stays here

The Rangers are back in action for their second three-in-four in back-to-back weeks, beginning their west coast trip in Vegas. Vegas smacked the Rangers around in their last meeting, and nothing has really changed on either roster since that meeting. Hopefully the Rangers learned something.

The Rangers will ride Alex Georgiev for a third straight start as Henrik Lundqvist is dealing with an illness. The rest of the lines appear to be remaining the same, but that will change a lot throughout the game. David Quinn makes Tom Renney blush sometimes.
