NY Rangers Game 28 Open Thread: Control the play a little more?

Georgiev stole one last night, don't force him to do it again

After Alex Georgiev stole one last night, he’s back in net in the second of a back to back to face the Habs. The last time these two teams saw each other, the Rangers made a huge comeback. I wouldn’t expect that to happen this time around.

Marc Staal is back for the Blueshirts, replacing the injured Libor Hajek. Safe to assume Micheal Haley is back in the lineup after the Rangers returned Boo Nieves to Hartford today as well. Those are the only lineup changes expected tonight. At least for the first puck drop. After that, who knows.

Habs Lines

Tomas Tatar-Phillip Danault-Brendan Gallagher
Nick Suzuki-Max Domi-Arturri Lehkonen
Charles Hudon-Jesperi Kotkaniemi-Joel Armia
Nick Cousins-Nate Thompson-Jordan Weal

Ben Chiarot-Shea Weber
Victor Mete-Jeff Petry
Mike Reilly-Cale Fleury

PP1: Domi-Kotkaniemi-Armia-Weber-Reilly
PP2: Tatar-Suzuki-Gallagher-Hudon-Petry

Carey Price gets the start.

Rangers Lines (best guess)

Brendan Lemieux-Mika Zibanejad-Pavel Buchnevich
Artemi Panarin-Ryan Strome-Kaapo Kakko
Chris Kreider-Filip Chytil-Jesper Fast
Micheal Haley-Brett HowdenBrendan Smith

Brady Skjei–Jacob Trouba
Libor Hajek–Tony DeAngelo
Ryan Lindgren–Adam Fox

PP1: Panarin-Zibanejad-Strome-Kreider-Fox
PP2: Kakko-Buchnevich-Chytil-Trouba-DeAngelo

PK Forwards: Fast, Kreider, Strome, Howden, Lemieux

Alex Georgiev gets the start.

  • Wow, why not just lay down and give the game away? Haley and Staal, real speed burners and offensive forces! Oh, they play on defense? Haha. Georgiev will have to wear his octopus suit to stop all the rubber he’s going to face tonight. What is Quinn doing? And Davidson and Gordon? Have they no say at all what goes on on the ice? Why has Ruff not been canned yet?

  • Always got the feeling that some people thought this 2019-2020 NY Rangers team would not see a situation where they would be 5 games above .500 .Well if we win tonight that is what we will be ………..LETS GO RANGERS !!!!!
