Chris Kreider potentially out tonight?

Per Vince Mercogliano, Chris Kreider was not a part of line rushes today, meaning he could be out tonight against the Islanders.

The timing couldn’t be worse for Chris Kreider to be out. The Rangers need a regulation win tonight to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The good news is that all of the key kids will be in the top-nine, even if it does mean more top-six time for a struggling Colin Blackwell.

Julien Gauthier remains a healthy scratch, as David Quinn seems pretty set on a defensive fourth line. I’m not beating that horse to death yet. That will be covered soon enough here.
