NOTEBOOK

The Rangers were forced to make a change yesterday as D Paul Mara was out with a shoulder injury. D Marek Malik, who had been out for 13 games with a back injury, returned to the lineup ... The Senators had to play without injured D Anton Volchenkov, who missed his first game with a broken index finger. "It's a big loss when you lose a player that plays that many minutes," said coach John Paddock. "Everybody is going to have to pick up the slack. Not just the defencemen, the forwards and goalies are going to have to adjust as well. We joke about the blocked shots, but the goalies are going to be facing more chances."

Sun Rating: 2 out of 5
