Our Blueshirts return after a long break to face the Atlanta Kovalchuk’s Thrashers. This is also the long awaited return of Nik Antropov. With all the injuries, here are the expected lines:
It’s obviously not your ideal lineup, though I am interested to see how Anisimov responds to more playing time. Of course, the D-pairings remain the same. Lundqvist should be in goal.
Ilya Kovalchuk is a game time decision, though all signs point to him playing. The key to beating Atlanta is stopping Ilya–a tall task. This will be a good test for our Rangers, to see how they endure the injury storm.
Use this as your open thread. Watch, discuss, have fun. I’ll be out getting Chinese food, but I’ll be sure to join you. Let’s Go Rangers!
