It appears Steve Kampfer will not be in the lineup tonight when the New York Rangers play the Boston Bruins.

Kampfer will sit for the eighth straight game this afternoon. The 29-year-old blueliner has only one points in 13 games this season.

The New York Rangers will have Henrik Lundqvist in goal tonight against the Boston Bruins.

Head coach Alain Vigneault mentioned tonight's matchup against the Boston Bruins as being too big a game to have his starter sit on the bench. Lundqvist turned aside 33 of 35 shots in a 4-2 win last night against the Los Angeles Kings and will be hoping for more of the same tonight. He has a 15-8-2 record with a 2.68 goals against average and .917 save percentage.

Mika Zibanejad (concussion) participated in the Rangers' Friday morning skate.

Although Zibanejad won't play Saturday against the Bruins, the hope is he might be able to practice on Monday and play Tuesday against the Ducks. Stay tuned for further updates.

Ondrej Pavelec is the Rangers' probable starter against the Bruins on Saturday.

Henrik Lundqvist started and won 4-2 Friday night over the Kings, so it is likely that Pavelec will get the call against Boston Saturday afternoon. Pavelec is coming off two starts in which he has made at least 40 saves--the first time a Ranger goalie had accomplished that feat in 16 years. For the season, Pavelec has a 2-4-1 record with a 3.04 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage.

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 33 of 35 shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

Lundqvist will want Marian Gaborik's goal back because he let the Kings forward's shot squeak between his legs, but he was rather solid the rest of the night. King Henrik now owns a 15-8-2 record with a 2.68 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage this season. He's won two of his last three games and seven of his last nine.
Dec 15 - 10:03 PM

Rick Nash scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 4-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

With under 3:30 remaining in regulation, Nash stole the puck in the neutral zone, entered the Kings zone before beating Kings netminder Jonathan Quick to give New York a 3-2 lead. He's now found the back of the net twice in his last three games. The 33-year-old has nine goals and 17 points in 32 games this season. Chris Kreider, Kevin Hayes and J.T. Miller also found the back of the net for the Rangers in the victory.

Steven Kampfer will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Kings.

Kampfer has now been scratched in seven straight games. He has no goals and one assist in 13 games this season. He has no fantasy value going forward.

It looks like Henrik Lundqvist will get the start on Friday.

Lundqvist was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. He has a 14-8-2 record, 2.70 GAA, and .916 save percentage in 26 contests this season.
Dec 15 - 1:26 PM

Mika Zibanejad (concussion) has been ruled out for Friday and Saturday's games.

That's to be expected given that Zibanejad hasn't resumed practicing yet. The hope is that he'll skate with the Rangers on Monday and they'll go from there.
Dec 15 - 1:09 PM

Mika Zibanejad (concussion) isn't likely to play on Friday.

Zibanejad has been skating on his own, but the Rangers didn't practice on Thursday and he'll likely need to be tested in those before he can return to the lineup. He last played on Nov. 26.
Dec 14 - 4:24 PM

Ryan McDonagh registered an assist in the Rangers' 3-2 loss to Ottawa Wednesday night.

McDonagh has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four games. He has 16 assists in 27 contests this season.
Dec 14 - 10:19 AM

Pavel Buchnevich found the back of the net in the Rangers' 3-2 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday.

Buchnevich also had an assist during the Rangers' previous contest on Monday. He has 11 goals and 23 points in 31 contests this season. That puts the sophomore forward in second place in the Rangers' scoring race, behind only Mats Zuccarello.
Dec 14 - 10:18 AM

Henrik Lundqvist allowed three goals on 30 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

The Rangers managed to tie the game at one after allowing the first goal, but they were never able to get a lead on the struggling Sens. Lundqvist has now dropped two of his last three games. He has a 14-8-2 record with a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage this season.
