Henrik Lundqvist, who left Monday's practice early with an illness, says to be feeling fine. He'll be between the pipes tonight for the Rangers after posting a 2.48 GAA and a .920 save percentage in 65 games this season.

On the other side, the under has cashed in four of the Penguins' last five Conference Quarterfinals games and with Marc-Andre Fluery the first goalie off the ice following the team's morning skate, Pittsburgh should have its starting goaltender. Fleury is still a game-time decision but there's a good chance he'll play tonight.
