Projected lineups for Canadiens, Rangers

by Dave Lozo / NHL.com
NEW YORK -- Montreal Canadiens coach Randy Cunneyworth said there will be no lineup changes for their matchup against the New York Rangers on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Cunneyworth said defenseman Tomas Kaberle still isn't ready to play and that forward Scott Gomez, who skated Wednesday, could get into a game before the end of the season but it won't be against the Rangers.

The Rangers will also ice the same lineup as they did in Winnipeg on Wednesday, with goaltender Henrik Lundqvist making his season-high eighth consecutive start. He will be opposed by Carey Price.

Here are the projected lines for each club:

CANADIENS
Max Pacioretty - David Desharnais - Erik Cole
Rene Bourque - Tomas Plekanec - Louis Leblanc
Ryan White - Lars Eller - Mike Blunden
Aaron Palushaj - Petteri Nokelainen - Brad Staubitz

Josh Gorges - PK Subban
Andrei Markov - Alexei Emelin
Chris Campoli - Frederic St. Denis

Carey Price
Peter Budaj

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

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

Henrik Lundqvist
Martin Biron
