Update, 11:22 a.m.:
Jesse Spector tweets that Derek Boogaard is back in the lineup with Todd White a healthy scratch. Torts had said yesterday he wasn’t going to change the lineup, but I guess he had a change of heart.
The New York Rangers (8-7-1) host the Edmonton Oilers (4-8-3) today at MSG starting at 12:30 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo Sports.
