Henrik Lundqvist gets the start
Probable Scratches/Injuries: Mike Sauer (concussion), Mats Zuccarello (wrist), Carl Hagelin (suspension), Steve Eminger (healthy), Jeff Woywitka (healthy), John Scott (healthy)
Preview: This is essentially a must win for the Rangers. The Senators have never actually held a lead in this series, but that’s mostly a testament to the way Lundqvist has been playing.
The Rangers have all the pressure in this game, but a win puts all the pressure on the Sens (for good reason).
Crazy Thought: Someone other than Boyle or Cally scores.
