For the first time all season the New York Rangers will play a game without Henrik Lundqvist between the pipes. Instead, it will be Antti Raanta making his Rangers debut against the San Jose Sharks tonight at Madison Square Garden.

After winning the first three games of the campaign, the Blueshirts have lost three straight. The latest came yesterday at the hands of the New Jersey Devils in overtime.

Alain Vigneault will go with the same lineup as he did in the Devils game.
