Rangers (32-34-8, 72 pts) vs. Sabres 7 pm; Madison Square Garden MSG Network; ESPN 98.7 FM
The Rangers begin a quick two-game homestand Saturday night against the Buffalo Sabres at Madison Square Garden.
New York is coming off a 5-3 loss Thursday night in Philadelphia against the Flyers. Jesper Fast scored twice and Mika Zibanejad added his 26th of the season.
That duo, along with Chris Kreider, have been red-hot as of late with 11 goals and nine assists in the last four games. The trio has registered 11 of the Rangers' 13 goals during that span.
Despite practicing on Friday, Henrik Lundqvist will once again miss Saturday's game as he continues to recover from a collision Tuesday night against the Blue Jackets. Alexandar Georgiev will make the start while Ondrej Pavelec will serve as backup.

They both need a good player to play with and give them space, we dint have any good players. Buch has looked awful out there, looks like he is in slow motion most the time. Watch the good players on other teams they move their asses our guys are slowwwwww

McLeod should be in the minors. Namestnikov has stunk. Buchnevich has also. Putting Fast and Andersson on the the 4th line is insulting.
Kreider Zibanejad Fast
Spooner Hayes Vesey
Zuccarello Chytil Andersson
Buchnevich Nieves Namestnikov
Buchnevich is a guy I hope Gorton trades to move up in the draft on draft day. He's freakin lazy. Namestnikov just isn't that good. However, they might be able to turn him into a pick.
Fast is not a 1st line winger...Agree on Buch...he is all hype so far....and Names is the guy Yzerman knew was the weak link that most benefited with playing with Stamkos and Kucherov....Hijack and Howden BETTER be legit...but most importantly AV needs to hit the F'n road

Carey hasn’t been bad in a fourth line role and would undoubtably be better with some decent linemates. McLeod, Desharnais and Holland doesn’t exactly scare other teams. Personally I’d sit Desharnais and Holland, and then sit back and see how bad genius can screw up a group of Zibanejad, Hayes, Namestnikov, Spooner, Andersson, and Chytil and only four holes. It should be Zibanejad, Hayes, Andersson and Chytil in no particular order giving the kids a good break in playing the position they are most comfortable with. Which I assume is center. The season is a wash let them buck.
