The Rangers are playing Washington tonight for the second straight Sunday matinee game. Seriously, we just did this last week. The Blueshirts have another one of these at the end of the month against Philly. I guess those fine folks at NBC didn’t care to check out team strength before booking these?
Anywho, Libor Hajek stays in the lineup this afternoon after a pretty strong performance the other night. That’s a good thing. If the kid stays steady, then that’s good! It’s only one game, but hey, we need things to be happy about with our Rangers. Plus Brendan Lemieux looks like he’s going to fit right in!
Braden Holtby gets the start.
Alex Georgiev gets the start.
Scratches/Injuries: Fredrik Claesson (healthy), Boo Nieves (healthy), Connor Brickley (healthy)
Crazy Prediction: Gordie Howe hat trick for Lemieux.
