For the first time in his Rangers career, defenseman Marc Staal will be a healthy scratch.

Ryan Lindgren will be in the lineup in Staal’s spot.

Staal has been atrocious to start the season. He’s far from the only one, but he’s the only one on the blue line that has been terrible but also likely on the last leg of his Rangers/NHL career on a rebuilding team.
