It's just another game, but there will certainly be emotions for several Rangers when they face Ryan McDonagh, Dan Girardi and J.T. Miller tonight for the first time at Madison Square Garden.

"[McDonagh is] a former captain of this team. The success that we had as a group with him and the players that are there, obviously Dan and to some extent J.T - it's going to be an emotional night for teammates that played with them," coach Alain Vigneault said. "At the end of the day, we have to go out and play a game, a good game, and that's what we're going to try and focus on."

Youth Movement Energizing Blueshirts

Zibanejad Out, Shattenkirk Update on Line Combos

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

The infusion of youth into the Rangers' lineup over the last month even has Henrik Lundqvist thinking back to his days as a rookie with the Rangers.

"You see yourself in a lot of these players. They come in and play their first couple games and you remember how special that was," Lundqvist said of his new teammates. "But they're also here for a reason. They're here because they're very talented and good players. When you're out there, you don't really look at age or number of games - this is what we need to do and we expect everybody to do it for us. 

"There's definitely moments when you get reminded how young they are," he added. "It's the start of their careers and it's a special moment."
