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.
Tomas Tatar-Phillip Danault-Brendan Gallagher
Nick Suzuki-Max Domi-Arturri Lehkonen
Charles Hudon-Jesperi Kotkaniemi-Joel Armia
Nick Cousins-Nate Thompson-Jordan Weal
Carey Price gets the start.
Rangers Lines (best guess)
PK Forwards: Fast, Kreider, Strome, Howden, Lemieux
PK Defense: Skjei, Trouba, Staal Smith
Alex Georgiev gets the start.
Scratches: Libor Hajek (knee), Greg McKegg (lower body)
Crazy Prediction: The Rangers don’t get pinned in their own end regularly.
Game time is 7pm.
