The Carolina Hurricanes take on the New York Rangers tonight in Manhattan at Madison Square Garden. Take a look at the team’s lines and rosters.

The Hurricanes took to the ice at Madison Square Garden for their morning skate at 11:30 this morning. They’re coming off of a thrilling 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Sunday night, and they’ll look to sustain that momentum into a big divisional matchup tonight in the World’s Most Famous Arena . Here’s how they lined up this morning:

Jeff Skinner - Victor Rask - Elias Lindholm
Sebastian Aho - Teuvo Teravainen - Lee Stempniak
Phil di Giuseppe - Derek Ryan - Andrej Nestrasil
Joakim Nordstrom - Jay McClement - Viktor Stalberg

Ron Hainsey - Justin Faulk
Jaccob Slavin - Brett Pesce
Noah Hanifin - Matt Tennyson

Cam Ward
Michael Leighton

Injuries and Scratches: Jordan Staal (concussion), Bryan Bickell (multiple sclerosis), Brock McGinn (upper-body), Klas Dahlbeck (healthy)

So it’s Teravainen and not Lindholm moving to the middle in Staal’s absence. di Giuseppe, fresh off a call-up, draws in on the third line with Ryan and Nestrasil.

On the Rangers side of things, there’s a couple things up in the air as they relate to injuries, but we do have confirmation that Henrik Lundqvist will in fact be between the pipes for tonight’s game. Here’s our best guess at what the ‘Canes will be facing when they take on the Broadway Blueshirts tonight:

Mats Zuccarello - J.T. Miller - Rick Nash
Chris Kreider - Derek Stepan - Jesper Fast
Michael Grabner - Kevin Hayes - Brandon Pirri
Matt Puempel - Josh Jooris - Jimmy Vesey

Ryan McDonagh - Dan Girardi
Marc Staal - Nick Holden
Brady Skjei - Kevin Klein

Henrik Lundqvist
Antti Raanta

Injuries and Scratches: Mika Zibanejad (ankle), Pavel Buchnevich (back spasms), Oscar Lindberg (healthy), Adam Clendening (healthy)

Head coach Alain Vigneault has stated that Miller is “90/10” to play tonight, but it seemed that he was less sure about Grabner’s status. If Grabner can’t go, look for Lindberg to draw in in his spot.
