Opponent Notes:
– Columbus is 1-2-0 on their current four game road trip.

– Sergei Bobrovsky will start tonight for the first time since suffering groin injury on Dec. 3. He's is 0-4-1 with a 2.99 GAA in his last five starts versus the Rangers.

– Columbus leading scorer Ryan Johansen (16g, 16a) has just two points (1g, 1a) in his last five games with a -4.

– Former Ranger Brandon Dubinsky has four points (1g, 3a) in his last six games.

– Former Ranger Artem Anisimov has three goals in his last six games.

– Former Ranger Fedor Tyutin is a -3 in his last four games.

– Former Ranger Marian Gaborik is out indefinitely with a broken collarbone he suffered in his first game back after missing 17 games with a knee injury.

– Tonight will be Nathan Horton's third game of the season after missing the first 40 contests recovering from shoulder surgery. Despite suffering the injury as a Bruin in the Stanley Cup Finals last June, the Blue Jackets signed Horton to a seven-year, $37.1 million contract during the offseason. He scored in his Blue Jackets debut Thursday night.

– Let's hope MSG personnel hid all the Gatorade coolers with Dubinsky in town…
