Rangers to ice usual lines, defense pairings

NEWARK, N.J. -- The Rangers are continuing to carry 14 healthy forwards, with Erik Christensen and Wojtek Wolski once again the healthy scratches for Tuesday night's game against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center.

Coach John Tortorella hasn't had much need to shuffle his forwards in and out of the lineup thanks to good health of late and success most of this season, but the Rangers play two straight games coming out of the All-Star break, so having Christensen and Wolski around will be key if a regular suffers an injury.

"There will be discussions. We just got back," Tortorella said. "We go back-to-back here. After these two games, we have three days. I'm sure there will be some discussions about what we want to do. I'm not sure what's going to happen, but I'm sure it's going to be discussed."

The Rangers will ice their usual lineup against the Devils, who have their lines posted here:

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

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

Martin Biron
Henrik Lundqvist
