Klein returns as life without Lundqvist begins in Nashville (NYR at NSH 3PM)
Cam Talbot will be starting his second game as a result of Henrik Lundqvist’s “vascular injury”. Another strong game from start to finish will be needed to beat the Nashville Predators tonight.
Pekka Rinne is back for Nashville as he returned in a 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday. The Rangers will look to pounce on a Predators team that has won only 3 times in their last 8 games.
Kevin Klein will also be returning to Nashville for the first time since being traded.
