Antti Raanta gets the nod in the net tonight. He may be a little rusty since he hasn’t played since December 17.

Henrik Lundqvist, will be backing him up. He improved his stats with the Saturday win to 20-12-4 and his 20th win for the 11th consecutive season. Only Martin Brodeur and Tony Esposito have had similar stats in their careers.
