New York's starting goaltender is an unknown, and with no morning skate, an announcement won't come until later in the afternoon.
Tuesday marks the first of two games between New York and Anaheim, and the only one at Madison Square Garden.
The Ducks enter play with four wins in the last 10 games, including a 5-3 defeat Monday against the Devils in New Jersey. They're currently fifth in the Pacific Division and two points behind Dallas for the second wild card spot.
Corey Perry leads the team with 22 points in 31 games, followed by Rickard Rakell's 21 in 29. Goaltender John Gibson is expected to get the start after serving as the team's backup last night in New Jersey. He's 10-10-4 with a 2.84 GAA and a .921 SV% thus far this season.
Players to Watch
Miller's line between Rick Nash and Zuccarello has been strong in the two games since they were put together Friday night against the Kings. For his career, Miller has a point in four of his six games against the Ducks, including three multi-point performances to total seven points in the six contests.
Adam Henrique has been worth the price for the Ducks thus far since his acquisition from New Jersey late last month. Henrique has four goals and four assists in nine games since heading to the West Coast, including a goal last night against his former team.
"Another team we don't see as often, but they play really well together. They've got some size but they've got a lot of speed, too. Pretty mobile backend as well, guys you've got to be aware of joining the play and being creative. It's going to be a tough challenge for sure." - Ryan McDonagh on the Ducks
New York has won each of its last three games against Anaheim at MSG (dating back to Mar. 22, 2015), as well as six of its last seven games against Anaheim at MSG, dating back to Jan. 20, 2009 (6-1-0 record).
