Rangers vs. Blackhawks (Game 11) - Updated

Update, 5:18 p.m.:
Steve Zipay tweets that John Tortorella has announced that Steve Eminger is the Rangers 5th defenseman, with Matt Gilroy (healthy scratch tonight) and Michael Sauer as 6th.

...while I haven't been the biggest Eminger fan, the guy is the only defenseman willing to throw his body around, which is why I think Torts wants him in the lineup.

Original Post:
The New York Rangers (5-4-1) host the Chicago Blackhawks (7-5-1) tonight at MSG starting at 7:00 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo Sports.
