Biron Starting, Wolski, Woywitka In; Christensen, Bell Out

The New York Rangers lineup will have some new faces in it tonight as they look to rebound from their loss at Edmonton and finish their Western Canada trip 3-1.  The Rangers official twitter announced that Martin Biron will make his first start of the season along with the return of both Wojtek Wolski and Jeff Woywitka to the lineup.  Biron getting the start tonight should not be seen as anything to do with Lundqvist leaving the game early the other night, but simply giving Biron some action.

Wolski, who has been out since the season opener with a sore groin that has plagued him for about a month takes the place of Erik Christensen in the lineup.  Woywitka is swapped for Bell, who took his place last game. 

Mike Rupp is playing despite missing the morning skate and being said to have some knee issues right now.
