Roberto Luongo, 5-0-1 in his last six, starts in goal, with Cory Schneider backing up.

Niklas Backstrom starts in goal, and could play again Tuesday in Calgary, where he always excels, because Josh Harding hasn't played since a neck injury on Dec. 6.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
