The Bruins will look to get back on track after Thursday's overtime loss to the New Jersey Devils when they take the ice at the Garden for a matinee against the New York Rangers. The Blue Shirts will also be looking for redemption after taking a 6-2 beating from the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Just who are these Rangers you speak of?

Notes:

- I figured I would be too hungover to write a preview this morning, so I wrote this yesterday. This information could be horribly outdated by the time you read it.

- I would like to see Tuuka Rask get the start today. Tim Thomas is getting a heavy workload lately. I say give the kid a shot and see what he can do in a meaningful game.

- Congratulations to Chris Drury for being inducted into the Beanpot Hall of Fame.

- Can the B's crack Henrik Lundqvist?

- The Rangers have the best penalty kill in the league (87.6%)

Public Skate (open thread) starts at noon: Stop by and discuss the game with other B's fans
