NEW YORK -- Last summer the New York Rangers' season ended against the New Jersey Devils in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. They now have an opportunity to gain a measure of revenge, as they can eliminate the Devils from postseason contention with a win Sunday at Madison Square Garden (3 p.m. ET, NBC).
They'll go about doing that by icing the same lineup that has scored 14 goals in the past two games, including a franchise-record five goals in a span of 2:58 Friday against the Buffalo Sabres.
Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist allowed four goals on 28 shots in Buffalo, but he will be back in the crease Sunday for his eleventh straight start. Before the Rangers' 8-4 win Friday, Lundqvist had allowed two goals or fewer in 13 of his past 15 games.
Here is the projected lineup for the Rangers:
Carl Hagelin - Derek Stepan - Ryan Callahan
Ryane Clowe - Derick Brassard - Rick Nash
Taylor Pyatt - Brad Richards - Mats Zuccarello
Chris Kreider - Darroll Powe - Arron Asham
Dan Girardi - Ryan McDonagh
Michael Del Zotto - Anton Stralman
John Moore - Steve Eminger
Injured: Marc Staal (eye), Brian Boyle (leg), Michael Sauer (concussion), Derek Dorsett (upper body)
Scratched: Matt Gilroy, Roman Hamrlik
