Lineup notes: Falk, Carcillo scratchedJanuary 6, 2014, by
Per Andrew Gross, Justin Falk and the newly acquired Dan Carcillo will be the healthy scratches tonight when the Rangers take on the Columbus Blue Jackets. Michael Del Zotto and J.T. Miller will be in the lineup. Henrik Lundqvist will start (as expected).
Starting Del Zotto over Falk is a no-brainer at this point, although few will agree. Miller over Carcillo is also a no-brainer, as Carcillo needs to adjust to the new systems before he is a useful cog on what is a defensive shutdown line.
