Ready for the Rangers

After a practice-filled week, the Canadiens are ready to take on New York on Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

The New York Rangers will try and find a way to win on the road when they visit the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday at Bell Centre.

The Rangers are road worriers this season with a 3-7-2 record away from home, contrasted with a 10-4-0 record at home at Madison Square Garden.

Alexandar Georgiev, the first Bulgarian-born player in the NHL, will get the start in goal for the Rangers. The 22-year-old is 4-3-0 this season and is coming off a 29-save shutout in his last start against the New York Islanders on Nov. 21.

The Rangers, battling injuries in the forward ranks, called up right winger Vinni Lettieri from Hartford of the American Hockey League.

The Canadiens (11-9-5) have their own issues. They have lost five in a row (0-3-2), their longest losing streak of the season, though they might have deserved better. They are coming off a 2-1 loss at home to the Carolina Hurricanes in which they had 93 shot attempts.
