Callahan out, Scott in for Rangers
RALEIGH, N.C. -- New York Rangers forward Ryan Callahan will miss Thursday's game with an injured foot. Coach John Tortorella said no decision has been made on who will take his spot on Brad Richards' line.

Forward John Scott will make his Rangers debut after being acquired from Chicago ahead of Monday's trade deadline.

Martin Biron gets the start in goal for the Rangers.

We had the Hurricanes lineup earlier; here's what the Rangers likely will counter with:

Artem Anisimov - Derek Stepan - Marian Gaborik
Carl Hagelin - Brad Richards - Ruslan Fedotenko
Brandon Dubinsky - Brian Boyle - Brandon Prust
John Scott - John Mitchell - Mike Rupp

Ryan McDonagh - Dan Girardi
Michael Del Zotto - Anton Stralman
Marc Staal - Stu Bickel

Martin Biron will start in goal, with Henrik Lundqvist the backup.
Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
