New York Rangers forwards Mats Zuccarello and Viktor Stalberg and defenseman Dan Girardi will not play against the Detroit Red Wings in the final game of the regular season on Saturday (12:30 p.m. ET; FS-D, MSG, NHL.TV).
Rangers coach Alain Vigneault also said backup goaltender Antti Raanta will start.
Zuccarello, the Rangers' leading point-scorer with 61 (26 goals, 35 assists), and Stalberg each played Thursday in a 4-1 loss to the New York Islanders, but did not practice Friday. Each is out with a lower-body injury, but Vigneault says he expects each player back for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
