Game Thread: Red Wings vs. Rangers

The day after losing to the New Jersey Devils 4-3 in a shootout in Newark, the Detroit Red Wings will head to the other side of the Hudson to take on the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

The Rangers come home after beating the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in Buffalo last night, as Marian Gaborik and Christopher Higgins scored for New York. Henrik Lundqvist had a sparking game, stopping 36 shots.

The Red Wings came back from 2-0 and 3-1 against the Devils on a multi-point game from Patrick Eaves and goals from Kris Draper and Tomas Holmstrom (his 200th career goal). Detroit is extremely banged up: Brian Rafalsi remains out with a back injury on top of the parade of others out. Pavel Datsuyk is tied for third in the NHL with 32 takeaways.
