What they are saying about the Rangers:

Here's the run down of players returning from injury: Callahan returns tomorrow, Dubinsky possible, Prospal likely Thursday, Christensen by Saturday and Fedotenko in 10 days. Girardi is in tomorrow but Torts left the door open for Del Zotto to play.

Season series: Rangers Lead 2-1.
Last meeting: December 15, 2010 – Rangers Won 4-1

Clearly Chris Kunitz is the MVP of the Penguins 12-0 with him. 0-2 without. Pens had the tying goal taken away. Terrible, terrible call. But that happens. Refs didn't torch Brent Johnson for three straight goals.

Penguins notes:, No Crosby, no Malkin. was injured in practice and will miss the game. Godard returns to the line-up in Letestu's place.
Rangers notes:
Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi are both returning from injury tonight.
Brandon Dubinsky may be back as well.
Vinny Prospal and Erik Christensen practiced with the Rangers today, but will not be in the line-up.
