The Rangers are back in action this afternoon in their annual Black Friday matchup against a rival. This year it’s the Flyers, who should be better than they are but aren’t. At 9-10-2, the Flyers are at the bottom of the division, and not looking to climb out anytime soon. That said, they still give the Rangers fits.
As for the Blueshirts, they are fresh off the dominating Thanksgiving Eve performance against the Islanders. The Rangers haven’t made any call ups following the Cody McLeod injury, so my guess is that Mats Zuccarello is back in the lineup. Makes sense, right?
Claude Giroux-Sean Couturier-Travis Konecny
Oskar Lindblom-Nolan Patrick-Jakub Voracek
James van Riemsdyk-Jordan Weal-Wayne Simmonds
Scott Laughton-Jori Lehtera-Dale Weise
Calvin Pickard gets the start.
Rangers Lines (unconfirmed)
Henrik Lundqvist gets the start.
Crazy Prediction: Wayne Simmonds doesn’t get a point.
Game time is 1pm.
