NEW YORK -- The slumping New York Rangers have forward Ryan Callahan, defenseman Michael Del Zotto, and No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist all in the lineup against the Colorado Avalanche as they try to hold off the charging Pittsburgh Penguins.

Callahan, the team captain, returns after missing three straight games and six of eight because of a bruised right foot. Del Zotto is back after he sat out four in a row and five of eight with a hip injury. Lundqvist was forced to skip two games because of the flu.

The Rangers, however, were without forward Artem Anisimov, who injured his left shoulder in a 5-2 loss to the Penguins on Thursday, and defenseman Steve Eminger.

New York has lost four of six and is two points ahead of Pittsburgh.
