It's a rare Original Six showdown tonight as the Wings visit Madison Square Garden and the New York Rangers.

I haven't been in front of a TV in hours and there's insanely little pregame coverage of tonight's matchup on teh intarwebs so I'm going to make a couple guesses: Rafalski still out, Howard starts in net, May back in the lineup. Okay, I know that last one's true 'cause it was mentioned yesterday but I don't know who he's replacing.

The Rangers recently waived their backup so Henrik Lundqvist gets his second start in as many nights, coming off a win in Buffalo last night.

MSG hosted a basketball game this afternoon so expect the ice to be about as bad as Dallas in May of 1998. Sweet.

Looks like Raffy is in. And I didn't know Howard wore #35 in honor of Richter, he wore #33 in college and with GR.

Leino out for May. Odd.

Bertuzzi with Cleary and Abdelkader. Weird PP unit.

There's that great defensive coverage again. Rookie mistake by Abs?

He expected Ericsson to come over. Bad communication, wrong play. And of course they score on it.

Man, that was a sh*t powerplay, but that's irrelevant now.

Ken and Mickey are tempting fate, talking about Gaborik like that. Ranger fans are saying he's about to explode 'cause he's been too quiet tonight.

Shanny doesn't have to show up to work until 8:30? Nice.

Holy f*ck, did an intent to blow just go in Detroit's favor?
