Artemiy Panarin is back at practice, on his usual spot on the second line.
Practice lines with Strome on a maintenance day:
Kreider – Zib – Kakko
Panarin – Goodrow – Hunt
Laf – Chytil – Gauthier
Rooney – McKegg – Reaves #NYR

Panarin had missed a game with a lower body injury, but was expected back by Wednesday if the game hadn’t been postponed. The Rangers got Igor Shesterkin back yesterday as well, so when their season resumes this time next week, they will be at full strength.
