The Rangers are almost healthy. Kaapo Kakko skated after his removal from the COVID list. Jacob Trouba was at practice but in a non-contact jersey. Artemi Panarin’s two week leave of absence should be up after this weekend. Things are trending up for the Rangers, as the stats show a better season long outlook as well.
Despite all the injuries, the Rangers still managed to find a way to win on Tuesday. It was definitely a clunker of a game, but a win is a win. Learning how to win those games matters to these kids. They have another tough one against the Devils, but expect the Rangers to be much tighter defensively. Learning to win with injuries is important as well.
Mackenzie Blackwood gets the start.
Igor Shesterkin gets the start.
Crazy Prediction: Jack Johnson scores.
Game time is 7pm.
