Rangers Record: 33-29-4

Senators Record: 22-33-9

 

Tonight, Mar. 4, the Rangers travel to Ottawa to take on the Senators. This is the Rangers’ third game of a span of five games in eight days. They are currently on a three-game losing streak, extended in the loss against the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night. This most recent loss dropped the Rangers into eighth place in the East, behind the Buffalo Sabres, who beat the Rangers on Tuesday. The Rangers have not won a game since they beat the Washington Capitals 6-0 on Feb. 25, and are definitely due for a win.

The Senators also played last night, beating the Atlanta Thrashers. Though it was a solid victory, Ottawa still sits in dead-last in the Eastern Conference, watching playoff hopes slip away. Every game is a must-win right now for the Senators, if they hope to still be playing after the regular season ends.

The Senators have been burdened by injuries this season, including to captain Daniel Alfredsson and forwards Milan Michaelek and Peter Regin.

The Rangers, too, suffer heartily from injuries. Captain Chris Drury is out for the season with surgery, as is forward Alex Frolov. Also in the ranks of the injured are forward Marian Gaborik and goaltender Martin Biron. However, forward Ruslan Fedotenko and defenseman Marc Staal both made their returns on Thursday night, with Staal getting right back into form and logging over 21 minutes of ice-time. With these two players back, the Rangers should be in a good place to start winning again.

With the injury to Marty Biron, expect to see Henrik Lundqvist in net for most of the rest of the season, backed up by Connecticut call-up Chad Johnson. For the Senators, look for Craig Anderson to continue his sparkling tenure with Ottawa.
