Noteable Noteables:

  • Both the New York Rangers and the Pittsburgh Penguins are focusing on tonight’s game and avoiding looking ahead. The Rangers need a win to stay alive, and the Penguins have their sights on the Eastern Conference Final. Alain Vigneault shuffled up his lines in practice on Thursday in hopes of sparking the dormant Rangers offense. Stepan / Kreider / Zuccarello will be the top line, Pouliot / Brassard / St. Louis the second, and Richards / Nash / Carcillo was the third line. It is expected that Carl Hagelin will sub in for Carcillo. The Penguins are not expected to make any big changes to their lines. []
  • The Minnesota Wild have a chance to tie up their series with the Chicago Blackhawks and remain undefeated at the Xcel Energy Center. Last year the Wild lost their first two games to Chicago, won Game 3 and then lost Games 4 and 5, so they will also be working against history tonight as well. Chicago is not banking on the history between the two teams, as head coach Joel Quenneville acknowledged that Minnesota is a remarkably improved team over last season. Chicago will play their third game in a row without forward Andrew Shaw, who remains out with a lower body injury. []
