The Rangers will look to wipe the smile off Ryan Callahan’s face tonight at MSG.

RANGERS TO WATCH

1. Henrik Lundqvist – It’s time to beat Ben Bishop and Tampa, nothing else needs to be said.

2. Chris Kreider – I have been hard on his recent play but I expect an inspired performance in honor of his late grandfather tonight.

3. Mats Zuccarello – He’s playing well but he needs to contribute more offensively.

 

EYE ON THE ENEMY

1. Ryan Callahan – AV called the last 2 games a Cally Lovefest, and he’s right. He’s not a Ranger anymore and he’s having way to easy a time out there. He needs to be firmly planted on his rear.

2. Steven Stamkos – Since the Rangers have last change, there is no excuse why he shouldn’t be facing Dominic Moore and the top d-pair of Girardi and McDonagh.

3. Ben Bishop – He owns the Rangers. If you want to beat him, go upstairs. Watch closely and see how early he drops.

FULLTILT FORECAST

Record is at 12-11 and looking to go upwards.

Third time will be the charm against Tampa!
