The Rangers are now in their final home games with both Kevin Hayes and Mats Zuccarello (and Adam McQuaid). There was a ton of speculation this afternoon following the recall of Lias Andersson, but Brett Howden was placed on IR to make room. As of the writing of this post, all three players expected to get traded are in the lineup. That can change, though.
The Wild are in sell mode as well, having sent Nino Niederreiter to Carolina and Charlie Coyle to Boston. It’s worth noting that both teams have 60 points, so this is a big game for draft positioning. The calm before the storm.
Ryan Suter-Jared Spurgeon
Jonas Brodin-Greg Pateryn
Brad Hunt-Anthony Bitetto
Devan Dubnyk gets the start.
Rangers Lines (This is best guess as of now)
Henrik Lundqvist gets the start.
Scratches/Injuries: Brett Howden (knee), Connor Brickley (healthy)
Crazy Prediction: A trade!
