The Game

The Rangers hit the road for an afternoon matchup in Ottawa against the Senators on Saturday.

New York is coming off a 50-shot performance Thursday night in a 3-0 loss to the Islanders in Brooklyn, the team's second defeat in as many games.

There's good news and bad news on the injury front for the Rangers, as forward Pavel Buchnevich will return after missing seven games with concussion symptoms, though Kevin Hayes is questionable after not practicing on Friday.

Goaltender Alexandar Georgiev was slated to get the start against the Senators but came down with the flu, thus giving way to Henrik Lundqvist to make his fourth straight start. Paul Carey will return to the lineup after Vinni Lettieri was assigned to Hartford to make room for goaltender Brandon Halverson, who will serve as the backup.
