GREENBURGH Evgeny Svechnikov Jersey Womens , N.Y. (AP) Alexandar Georgiev is set to make his NHL debut for the New York Rangers when they visit the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.The 22-year-old Russian was 12-11-2 with a 2.97 goals-against average and .908 save-percentage in 31 games with Hartford of the AHL before being called up by the Rangers on Feb. 10.”Everything I hear about that young man is positive,” coach Alain Vigneault said Wednesday at the team’s practice facility in suburban New York. ”I hope our team in front of him is going to play real hard. We got to come out with energy.”Article continues below ...Starting goalie Henrik Lundqvist has appeared in 27 of the Rangers’ last 30 games – twice when he came off the bench to replace backup Ondrej Pavelec, who is currently injured. The Rangers have lost 11 of their last 14, and Lundqvist has given up 18 goals on 128 shots during their current four-game skid. That includes a 7-4 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.”That first period we came out with energy, we were ready to play,”Vigneault said. ”Obviously toward the end there wasn’t much left in the tank. We’ve had a full week to regroup here and I want us to play a good game in front of a guy that’s going to play his first game in goal for us.”Georgiev’s chance comes in the front end of a back-to-back, as the Rangers return home to host Minnesota on Friday night.After dealing with injuries to several players, the Rangers are starting to get healthier. Veteran defenseman Marc Staal, out since Feb. 3 with a strained neck, will return against the Canadiens and be paired with Tony DeAngelo. Vigneault said forward Chris Kreider (blood clot) is also close to returning Womens Zach Parise Jersey , but will not make the trip to Montreal. The coach said defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk (knee) and Ryan McDonagh (upper body) and Pavelec have all started skating as they work their way back and will also remain in New York.Defenseman Rob O’Gara, acquired from Boston on Tuesday in the deal that sent Nick Holden to the Bruins, will make his Rangers debut against the Canadiens. The 24-year-old will be paired with fellow rookie John Gillmour.The deal was the first of what could be several made with Monday’s trade deadline approaching. It came about two weeks after general manager Jeff Gorton announced the Rangers’ moves at the deadline would be with an eye to the future and ”not trying to save this season.”Vigneault acknowledged the announcement has made things ”a little awkward,” but added that players and coaches ”all got to focus and we all got to be pros.”The Rangers, who have missed the postseason just once – in 2010 – since the lockout wiped out the 2005-06 season, are six points behind Columbus for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.— SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The Winter Classic is going back to college — and it’s bringing along two familiar foes.Patrick Kane and the Chicago Blackhawks. Patrice Bergeron and the Boston Bruins.Hockey at the home of Knute Rockne, Paul Hornung and, of course, Rudy.The 11th edition of the NHL’s annual New Year’s Day showcase features its fourth matchup of Original Six franchises — two teams with plenty of experience when it comes to playing outside Andrew Shaw Jersey , and prominent connections to each other and host Notre Dame.While many hockey fans are sick of the same group of teams playing in the NHL’s outdoor series — especially the Blackhawks, who are winless in three previous appearances in the Winter Classic — it sounds as if it never gets old for Kane, Bergeron and company.“Very special. It’s always fun,” said Bergeron, who split his first two appearances in the Winter Classic, winning at Fenway Park in 2010 and losing at Gillette Stadium three years ago. “You know obviously the history behind this stadium is huge and goes way back.“You try to soak everything in, but at the same time we know what happened last time. You have a job to do and we have to make sure that we’re ready for that. But that being said, also it’s a great event. We’re looking forward to it and now we’re here.”Just three days after Notre Dame lost in the College Football Playoff, the longtime home of the Fighting Irish hosts the NHL’s sixth regular-season game in Indiana. It becomes the second college to host the Winter Classic, joining the University of Michigan in 2014.The 30-year-old Kane http://www.officialcanadiensprostore.com/authentic-adidas-antti-niemi-jersey , who has seven goals and six assists during a seven-game point streak, said Notre Dame is popular in the Irish section of Buffalo where he grew up. He said he wasn’t a fan of the school when he was a kid, but he has been coming to campus for training camp and football games over the years and understands the significance of his surroundings.“Yeah, I mean Notre Dame, it’s so much history,” Kane said. “For us, you just kind of think of having training camp here. Then like for me, you watch that movie ‘Rudy’ growing up all the time. Some unbelievable scenes in that. So pretty amazing that you’re just going to be playing hockey out there and you’re going to actually be performing out there.”Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman is a Notre Dame alum. He said he visits campus multiple times every year, but this was different.“I never thought I’d see a hockey rink in the middle of Notre Dame Stadium,” he said.That hockey rink was mostly empty on Monday. A steady rain forced both teams to practice indoors at Notre Dame’s Compton Family Ice Arena.The forecast is more encouraging for Tuesday Authentic Artturi Lehkonen Jersey , but the rain means warmups will be the first time each team gets to test the makeshift surface and get used to the unusual setting.“I think it’s a challenge that both teams will face,” Boston forward Jake DeBrusk said. “Just one of those things that you kind of got to go out there and try to get a feel for the ice and conditions. I guess that comes with the Winter Classic and everything that’s about it.”The Bruins will be without David Backes after the veteran forward was suspended for three games for an illegal hit to the head of Devils forward Blake Coleman. Defenseman Charlie McAvoy also has been ruled out with a lower-body injury, but forward Brad Marchand is set to return after missing Saturday’s 3-2 overtime win at Buffalo with an upper-body injury.Coach Bruce Cassidy is going with Tuukka Rask in goal over Jaroslav Halak, who has played well in his first season with Boston. Rask made 26 saves in the victory over the Sabres.“We’re trying to get him some consecutive starts to get him feeling good about his game on a regular basis,” said Cassidy, a former assistant coach with Chicago who was drafted by the Blackhawks and played each of his 36 NHL games for the franchise. “I think it’s been not as consistent as I think we all agree as we’d like, so this is an opportunity for him to take another step.”Cam Ward starts in goal for Chicago despite the stellar recent play from Collin Delia. The 34-year-old Ward is making his first appearance in the Winter Classic after spending his first 13 NHL seasons with Carolina.“I’ve been around a long time. … I know this is going to be my first and only attempt at doing it,” Ward said. “So I think you don’t want to take it for granted. You want to soak it all in.”
