The Rangers are welcoming Erik Karlsson and the San Jose Sharks to town tonight with new lines and a hope that the shakeup leads to some wins. San Jose got off to a slow start, but their 8-2 drubbing of Philly was a reminder of what this team is expected to do. They can score seemingly at will.
Neal Pionk and Kevin Shattenkirk will be scratched tonight. We will see the Rangers debut of Frederik Claesson. Tony DeAngelo is paired with Marc Staal, good luck kid. For some ready Skjei/McQuaid seems to be working, so let that run I guess? No matter what, those defense pairings against the potent Sharks have me worried.
