The Rangers lineup may look a little different this afternoon as they deal with a few injuries.

It looks like the club remembered that Brendan Smith does actually play defense. Smith has been nothing short of a professional during his entire stay in New York, moving to forward without a peep and producing, at the very least, passable results. He’s far from the worst option on left defense too.
As for the forwards, it doesn’t look like the club is going to have major injuries to deal with, which is good.
I wonder what will happen if Smith looks good on defense…just food for thought.
