The Rangers are back at it today against Calgary at MSG. The Blueshirts are still trying to figure things out, and Calgary might be a good team for everything to come together. The Flames are around .500 right now, and struggling to keep the puck out of their own net. With the Blueshirts struggling to score, this is an ideal situation.
If Frederik Claesson can’t go, it’ll be Adam McQuaid back in the lineup. The forwards are expected to remain the same. Calgary, despite it’s defensive struggles, is still potent on offense, so that blue line will be tested early and possibly often.
