7 PM: Vitali Kravtsov is OUT with an upper body injury and is being considered day-to-day. (NYR)
Jaro Halak is in net and Libor Hajek remains in the lineup.
1:32 PM: The Rangers have announced that Julien Gauthier has been called up from Hartford.
He has two goals in four games for the Wolf Pack this season.
Adam Rotter: We won’t know until later, but this makes me think that one of the 12 forwards is either a game-time decision tonight or won’t be able to go. It was likely that the Rangers were going to call someone up before going to Dallas and Arizona, but they wouldn’t need to do that until Friday, so someone might be out tonight.
