Rick Nash, Mats Zuccarello, and Jesper Fast are confirmed to be out of the lineup tonight. All three missed practice yesterday for maintenance days. By skipping today, they are guaranteed five off days before the final two games of the season next weekend.

The lines for tonight’s game are going to be a little bit of a mess:

Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Pavel Buchnevich
Brandon Pirri-Mika Zibanejad-Jimmy Vesey
Michael Grabner-Kevin Hayes-JT Miller
Tanner Glass-Oscar Lindberg-Matt Puempel

The defense pairs are still TBD, but expect some guys to get maintenance days.

    McDonagh is a definite scratch on the defensive side. I suspect we see another so Clendening gets a shot.

  2. Reenavipul says:

    Clendo stapled to the press box unless a Metro North derailment happens.

  3. Chris F says:

    Letang out for the playoffs.

  4. roadrider says:

    I’ll be at the game – got nosebleed seats for $20 through my company.

    I don’t expect a win and the result obviously will have little bearing on anything but I’ll be anxious to see Vesey and Buch get some extended ice time against a top team (OK, THE top team).
