Tonight's Lines: Joel Ward Returns for Game 1

Per Katie Carrera, here are tonight's lines (with Braden Holtby in net):

Marcus Johansson - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin

Martin Erat - Mike Ribeiro - Troy Brouwer

Jason Chimera - Mathieu Perreault - Eric Fehr

Matt Hendricks - Jay Beagle - Joel Ward

Karl Alzner - Mike Green

John Erskine - John Carlson

Jack Hillen - Steven Oleksy

That leaves Jeff Schultz, Wojtek Wolski, Tom Poti and Aaron Volpatti as healthy scratches, and Brooks Laich out with injury.

And at the other end of the rink, per Pat Leonard, the projected Rangers' lineup (with Henrik Lundqvist between the pipes):

Carl Hagelin - Derek Stepan - Ryan Callahan

Mats Zuccarello - Brad Richards - Rick Nash

Taylor Pyatt - Derick Brassard - Chris Kreider

Darroll Powe - Kris Newbury - Arron Asham

Ryan McDonagh - Dan Girardi

Michael Del Zotto - Anton Stralman

John Moore - Steve Eminger
