The Rangers continue their busy start to 2019, returning home to take on the recently hot Carolina Hurricanes. The Canes are 7-3-0 in their last ten games, and making a significant push towards the playoffs. They may not get there, but they are certainly going to make it interesting for the Isles, Sabres, and Habs.
As for the Blueshirts, they have one win this year. But hey, it came against the Islanders, so that’s a bonus. Ryan Lindgren makes his NHL debut tonight, fresh off his recent recall. That means Neal Pionk will be out still, and likely Brendan Smith will be the healthy scratch if Adam McQuaid can’t go.
