Henrik Lundqvist- 15-17-3, 2.66 gaa, .911 sv%, 2 so
Jimmy Howard – 8-10-8, 2.67 gaa, .913 sv%, 2 so
– Detroit has been shut out three times while averaging 2.13 goals during a 5-8-3 span.
– The Red Wings are 0 for their last 21 on the power play.
– Jimmy Howard is expected to return in goal tonight after missing Sunday night's game with a hip injury.
– Tonight, Detroit is expected to again be without Pavel Datsyuk (lower body), Daniel Alfredsson (back spasms), Johan Franzen (concussion), Darren Helm (groin), Stephen Weiss (groin), Joakim Andersson (lower-body) and Jonathan Ericsson (ribs). Tomas Tatar will also miss tonight's game due to the death of his father.
– Henrik Zetterberg is pointless in his last three games with a minus-4 rating. However, he has two goals and three assists in his last three visits to the Garden.
– Niklas Kronwall is pointless in his last five games.
– Tomas Jurco (2g, 1a in seven games with the Red Wings this season) has been recalled from the AHL for the game.
– Todd Bertuzzi has just one point (an assist) in the last 14 games.
– This has nothing to do with Rangers/Red Wings, but it'll be sure to pump you up for tonight's game (courtesy of the great AJ Castiglia)…
