|Michal Neuvirth has been stellar so far, along with MoJo.|
Unless you've been under a rock while watching this series (is that even possible?), you know that Henrik Lundqvist has been an absolute rock for the Rangers. To that end, he will receive his 31st consecutive start in goal tonight for John Tortorella's side; Lunqvist has allowed eleven goals in four games so far. On the injury front, alternate captain Ryan Callahan is still on crutches because of his broken leg and obviously will not play tonight. Steve Eminger will be the healthy scratch, as he has been all series.
For the Capitals, Michal Neuvirth will receive the start in goal for the fifth game in a row from Bruce Boudreau. Neuvrith has held the Capitals in games brilliantly all series, and has allowed seven goals in the four games he has started. Outside the crease, Mike Knuble, Dennis Wideman, and Tom Poti will all miss tonight's game with a hand injury, hematoma, and a pulled groin, respectively. As such, it is expected that the lineup will remain the same for game five, which means that Tyler Sloan, Sean Collins, Jay Beagle, and DJ King will be healthy scratches.
Puck drops for this one 3:12-ish due to all of the NBC hoopla. As there are no morning skates tomorrow because of the early start time, updates will come via Twitter all morning. Do join me.
