Probable Line-up:
Hagelin-Richards-Nash
Kreider-Stepan-Zuccarello
Pouliot-Brassard-Callahan
Boyle-D. Moore-Dorsett

McDonagh-Girardi
Staal-Stralman
Del Zotto-Falk

Goaltenders:
Cam Talbot – 5-1-0, 1.41 gaa, .944 sv%, 2 so

Roberto Luongo – 11-7-5, 2.32 gaa, .915 sv%, 2 so

…AV wasn't happy with the team's effort yesterday, so I'm not surprised to see the lineup changes. Although, after Staal's performance, I thought for sure he'd be sitting today.

Opponent Notes:
– Vancouver is 2-4-3 in their last nine games and haven't recorded back-to-back victories since a four-game run Oct. 22-28. They defeated the Senators 5-2 on Thursday.

– Though the clubs haven't met since Oct. 18, 2011, the Rangers have outscored the Canucks 5-0 while winning the last two meetings.

– Daniel Sedin has seven points (2g, 5a) in the last four games

– Henrik Sedin has seven points (4g, 3a) in his last seven games.

– Ryan Kesler has just one goal in his last 10 games.

– Former Ranger Dale Weise has three points (1g, 2a) in his last four games.

– Alexander Edler leads the Canucks with 62 blocked shots (7th in the NHL).

– Vancouver is 27th in the NHL on the power with just a 12.4% success rate.

– Vancouver has the NHL's best penalty kill with a 89.9% success rate.

–  Obviously with John Tortorella's return to New York, I had to post his best post game confrontation with Mr. Larry Brooks…

– Also, here's everyone's favorite Torts mash-up…
