Rangers @ Maple Leafs (Game 8)

The New York Rangers (6-1-0) visit the Toronto Maple Leafs (0-5-1) tonight at the Air Canada Centre starting at 7:00 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo! Sports.

Probable Lines:

Del Zotto-Rozsival

Henrik Lundqvist - 5-1-0, 2.34 gaa, .924 sv%, 0 so.

Joey MacDonald - 0-1-0, 4.00 gaa, .860 sv%, 0 so.

Opponent Notes:
- This is Toronto’s lone game in an 11-day span.

- The winless Leafs have gone seven games without a victory to start the season just once - in 1990-91, when it lost six games and tied one.

- The Maple Leafs have yet to score first in any game and have allowed 10 power-play goals in 24 chances.

- Former Islander goaltender Joey MacDonald is now the Leafs starting goalie due to injuries to Vesa Toskala and Jonas Gustavsson.
