Rangers and Coyotes Both Looking to Bounce Back

Wednesday night wasn't a good night for me as both the Rangers and Coyotes were handed their first losses of the season. Although Phoenix apparently played well enough for Chicago to fire head coach Denis Savard. 
The Rangers looked absolutely abysmal on Wednesday night and need to bounce back tonight. They will be hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs at MSG with Steve Valiquette getting the start tonight. Henrik Lundqvist is surely being rested for tomorrow's contest vs the Red Wings and Monday when Sean Avery returns to MSG. Ryan Hollweg is not making his return to New York because of a suspension that he has from the league.
The Coyotes are in Ottawa tonight looking to get back on the winning side of things after losing to the Blackhawks. Dan Carcillo has been suspended for two games by the NHL for grabbing someone while on the bench so his spot will be filled by either Brian McGratton or Enver Lisin. Don't be surprised to see big man McGratton in there. Bryzgalov will be getting the start while Derek Morris will be starting despite suffering a hand injury in the loss to Chicago. 
Rangers at 7 EST and so are the Coyotes. I will be at MSG for tonight's game so here is to a win for both of my teams.
