Opponent Notes:
- Tampa lost to Columbus by the score of 3-2 last night, but are 4-1-1 on the second night of back-to-backs this year.

- The Lightning have lost three straight at Madison Square Garden.

- Ben Bishop will be back in goal tonight after missing four games with a sprained wrist. In the 11 games prior to the injury, Bishop was 8-0-2 with a 1.54 GAA. Bishop has recorded shutouts in each of his last two meetings with the Rangers and is 4-0-0 with a .970 save percentage in four career appearances against them.

- Martin St. Louis has three goals, two assists in the last four games.

- Valtteri Filppula has 16 points (8g, 8a) in his last 14 games.

- Teddy Purcell has just one goal in the last 11 games, however, he does have nine assists in his last ten games.

- Alex Killorn has five points (2g, 3a) in the last four games.

- Tyler Johnson has points in eight of his last 10 games (4g, 4a).

- Victor Hedman has two goals, two assists in the last five games.

- Steven Stamkos has begun skating but remains out with a broken leg.

- Lighting up Ray Emery is one thing, but tonight should be a much taller (no pun intended) task for the Rangers with the 6' 7" Bishop back in net doing this…
