Rangers Vs Lightning: Pre-Game And 5 Questions

The Rangers take on the Lightning tonight at 7:30 pm. The game can be seen on MSG.

Some quick hits:

  • Dan Girardi is back in the Rangers lineup tonight.
  • Brian Boyle is once again a healthy scratch tonight courtesy of JT Miller.
  • I’m going to assume Matt Gilroy takes the 6th defenseman role tonight.
  • The Lightning’s game against Boston last night was cancelled. That’s bad news for the Rangers as the Lightning aren’t playing the second game of a back to back.
  • Henrik Lundqvist gets the start tonight.

Five questions:

1) Should Boyle not be scratched tonight?

2) Del Zotto didn’t get 1 second of PP time last game. Does he get some tonight?

3) Will JT Miller become full time fixture in the lineup?

4) Jeff Halpern, Darroll Powe, and Arron Asham are on pace for zero points between the three of them this season. Thoughts?

5) Can you stop Steven Stamkos?
