The rolling Rangers are in Chicago tonight to take on the Blackhawks, who are not a good team this year. The Hawks are on the outside looking in for the playoff race, and are unlikely to make up enough ground to get there. They are still potent offensively, but nowhere near as consistent as they once were.
The Rangers are rolling with Igor Shesterkin in net tonight. Julien Gauthier is also playing tonight, and it is my guess he is in for Jesper Fast. Or I could just be reading too deep into the tea leaves. But as of the writing of this post, that’s my guess.
Duncan Keith-Adam Boqvist
Erik Gustafsson-Connor Murphy
Slater Koekkoek-Olli Maata
Robin Lehner gets the start.
Rangers Lines (best guess)
PK Forwards: Fast, Kreider, Strome, Howden, Lemieux
PK Defense: Skjei, Trouba, Staal, Lindgren
Igor Shesterkin gets the start.
Crazy Prediction: Gauthier scores in his Rangers debut.
Game time is 8pm.
