The Rangers are back at MSG, and the fans are back as well. Tonight is the first night the Rangers will welcome fans back to MSG. MSG will operate at 10% capacity, in line with NY State guidelines, for the time being. It will be nice to have actual fans and fan noise back at The Garden.
As for the on-ice product, the Rangers are presumably dressing the same lineup tonight. Artemi Panarin and Filip Chytil are no-go’s tonight. It’s a fair assumption that neither K’Andre Miller nor Kaapo Kakko are off the COVID list either. That means it’s the same lineup that barely looked salvageable against the Flyers. This could get ugly, but the Bruins aren’t as offensively inclined as the Flyers.
