JETS (8-9-1) at RANGERS (8-7-2)
TV: RDS, TSN, MSG
Last 10: Winnipeg 5-5-0; New York 5-3-2
[b]Season series: This is the first of three meetings.
Big story: The Jets are looking to close what has been a very positive five-game road trip that
has seen them win three of four games. The Rangers are starting a four-game homestand as losers
of three straight and four of five.
Jets: There's good and bad to take out of Winnipeg's 4-2 win against the New Jersey Devils on
Sunday afternoon. First the good: trailing by a goal, the Jets scored three straight to beat one
of the East's top teams. The bad: Defenseman Dustin Byfuglien and forward Antti Miettinen left
the game with injuries, and their status for Tuesday's game against the Rangers is unknown.
"It's not easy to win on the road in this League. You've gotta play a simple game and guys have
to step up," said captain Andrew Ladd, who scored his team-leading 10th goal in the win. "It's
been nice so far. We've got another one to go and we'd sure like to finish it off with a win."
Rangers: Injuries abound in New York, but it's not enough to completely explain the Rangers'
recent slump. Rick Nash has missed three games with an injury the Rangers refuse to reveal, and
the offense continued to suffer in a 3-0 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.
As a collective group we have to pick up for the guys that are missing," captain Ryan Callahan
told reporters after Monday's practice. "It can't be one or two guys doing it themselves."
Who's hot: Jets sniper Evander Kane has a goal in three straight games and has scored in four of
his last five games.
Rangers center Derek Stepan has points in three of his last four games, with a goal and two assists.
Injury report: Byfuglien (upper body) and Miettinen (upper body) will likely have a clearer
picture following Tuesday morning's practice. Defenseman Tobias Enstrom (shoulder) and backup
goaltender Al Montoya (lower body) will not play.
The Rangers will likely be without Nash for a fourth straight game while defenseman Ryan McDonagh
(head) missed Monday's practice and is also likely out. Darroll Powe will return from a concussion
he suffered Feb. 17 and the foot injury suffered by defenseman Dan Girardi on Saturday wasn't enough
to keep him out of practice Monday. Defenseman Michael Del Zotto (lower body) missed the Montreal
game but should be back to face the Jets.
