The Rangers continue their homestand tonight against the Kings, and this is going to be an interesting matchup. The Kings have great process and no skill, so they don’t score and get bad goaltending. The Rangers have significantly improving process and the skill to go with it, but have lacked goaltending lately.
The Kings are very good at controlling the tempo of the game, which is something that we’ve seen the Rangers struggle against. Igor Shesterkin gets the start tonight as the three headed goalie rotation continues.
Alex Iafallo-Anze Kopitar-Dustin Brown
Adrian Kempe-Jeff Carter-Tyler Toffoli
Trevor Moore-Blake Lizotte-Austin Wagner
Carl Grundstrom-Mike Amadio-Trevor Lewis
Joakim Ryan-Drew Doughty
Alex Martinez-Ben Hutton
Kurtis Macdermid-Matt Roy
Jonathan Quick gets the start.
Rangers Lines (best guess)
PK Forwards: Fast, Kreider, Strome, Howden, Lemieux, McKegg
PK Defense: Skjei, Trouba, Staal, Smith, Lindgren
Igor Shesterkin gets the start.
Crazy Prediction: Shesterkin’s first shutout.
Game time is 6pm.
