Per Andrew Gross, the Rangers are scratching Oscar Lindberg, Tanner Glass, Jayson Megna, Raphael Diaz, and Kevin Klein tonight. The lines for tonight look like Alain Vigneault is doing some of his patented tinkering:
Henrik Lundqvist/Antti Raanta
I find it interesting that McIlrath is getting a look alongside Yandle. There are two things that come to mind here. First is that if it works, is Kevin Klein’s future as a Ranger in jeopardy? Second is that if it works, will they look to rotate eight defensemen to get some of the older veterans some rest?
