The concept of meeting teams that are really banged up is becoming a recurring theme in this lock out shortened season. We are not alone!

Lundqvist's save % is back up to .918 and a slow start and getting close to his career mark of .920 so the Rangers are fine there. Last year the Rangers played the entire season at full throttle and that can take its toll. If New York are without McDonagh, Girardi, and Nash that is significant. If we are without Buff (as well as Enstrom and Redmond) then both sets of D are decimated. could be interesting war of attrition.
