This is the fourth game of Edmonton's east coast tour and only win so far has come from the weak Buffalo team. Rangers lost 4-5 yesterday at Toronto after a very tight game. After resting yesterday, Henrik Lundqvist returns to Rangers' goal and faces a fellow Swede, as Viktor Fasth starts for second consecutive game for Edmonton. Lundqvist is by far the more established goalkeeper and Rangers will have an advantage in goalkeeping.
Important part of Edmonton's offence, Taylor Hall remains sidelined due to lower body injury. Derek Stepan has returned to Rangers's lineup and gives the offense a big boost. After losing yesterday in Toronto, Rangers get a good chance to return to winning ways at home in Madison Square Garden.
