|Alex Ovechkin's Caps look to get back on track tonight.|
To no one's surprise, John Tortorella will give the start in goal to Henrik Lundqvist, who has started all three games in the series, and allowed six goals in those three contests. Lundqvist made 23 saves on 25 shots in game three, and has played very well this entire series. On the injury front, New York is still missing right winger and alternate captain Ryan Callahan, who has a broken leg. The Rangers sent winger Mats Zuccarello down on Monday, so only one healthy scratch is expected, and that is defenseman Steve Eminger.
For the Caps, Michal Neuvirth is the more than likely starter for tonight's game. The Czech rookie has allowed five goals in three games this series and made 32 stops in a strong losing effort on Sunday. The Capitals will need Neuvirth to play well between the pipes in order to get this split that they are seeking. Outside the crease, Dennis Wideman and Tom Poti will both miss tonight's game with hematoma and a groin injury, respectively. The definite healthy scratches for Boudreau will be Tyler Sloan, Sean Collins, DJ King, and Jay Beagle. Eric Fehr, who has watched from the press box in both games so far, may be in line to see his first action tonight, though it remains to be seen who he would replace.
Puck drops for this one 7:10-ish. Check back later this morning for updates from the morning skates.
