Game 26: 11 forwards in Ottawa

The Rangers are in Ottawa tonight to wrap up the home-and-home with the Senators. The Senators allow the most even strength goals in the league and are #bad. The Rangers are a terrible possession team and should be #bad, but aren’t. The Henrik Lundqvist effect is real.

The Rangers are without Mats Zuccarello and Vlad Namestnikov (in addition to all the other injuries), and did not make a call up. So they will play with 11 forwards and 7 defensemen tonight. That should be fun. And hey, we can’t complain about anyone being scratched. Positivity!
