Game Preview

 

The New York Rangers were forced to the brink of first-round
elimination in last season's playoffs by the eighth-seeded Ottawa
Senators, and they're expecting to get another tough challenge in the
first meeting of 2013 - especially with Rick Nash out again.

Nash
will miss his second straight game Thursday night as New York visits an
Ottawa team on a bit of a roll despite injury problems of its own.

The
Rangers finished 2011-12 with the most points in the Eastern
Conference, but they trailed the Senators 3-2 in their playoff series
before winning a pair of one-goal games to advance.

Nash had not
been acquired from Columbus yet, and he won't be around for this matchup
either as he nurses an undisclosed injury. He also missed Tuesday's 3-1
home loss to Montreal, but coach John Tortorella refuses to use an
injury to a key player as an excuse for New York (8-6-1) not meeting
expectations.

"Everybody has injuries, but you just have to play,"
Tortorella said. "Nash is a big part of our team and has been a very
good player, but he's out. We can't just have one line going.

"We need to get more out of our other guys more consistently - with Nash out or not."

Derek
Stepan and Carl Hagelin, who are Nash's usual linemates, each assisted
on Anton Stralman's goal Tuesday, and Tortorella has lauded their solid
play of late - especially during the team's 4-0-1 stretch prior to the
latest defeat.

Hagelin has five goals and three assists during a
five-game point streak, but Tortorella said getting production from only
a couple players won't be enough.

"I still don't think we have
enough of our guys playing consistently with pace," Tortorella said.
"Quite honestly I think we're behind in our consistency."

Ottawa is dealing with its own injury problems, playing without forward Jason Spezza and reigning Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson, who had season-ending surgery to repair a torn Achilles suffered Feb. 13.

The Senators (9-6-2), though, have won their last two after beating the New York Islanders 3-1 on Tuesday.

"They're
playing well," said Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who is 4-1-0
with a 1.58 goals-against average over his last five starts and should
be in net Thursday. "They're missing some key guys but they have other
guys stepping up right now and getting the job done."

Craig Anderson
has been on top of his game, leading the NHL with a 1.57 GAA after
making 37 saves Tuesday. He has a 1.92 GAA in 18 career starts versus
the Rangers, including last year's playoffs.

"Everyone's kind of chipping in," Anderson said. "It's just my job to stop the puck, doesn't matter how many."

Coach
Paul MacLean expects Thursday to be another tough battle as well, no
matter who suits up for New York. The Rangers have won eight of the last
10 meetings in Ottawa, including the playoffs.

"I think it's a
pretty important game," MacLean said. "There's a chance for a bit of a
rivalry there. We're looking forward to it.

"It's a great
opportunity to play against a team that put us out of the playoffs and
we expect it to be a great game. They still have (Marian) Gaborik, they
still have Lundqvist; they're going to be a handful."

Lundqvist had a 1.70 GAA in last year's playoff series and has a 1.63 GAA in 14 career starts at Ottawa.
