Rangers shake up lines: McKegg to third line?
Kreider – Zib – Laf
Panarin – Strome – Hunt
McKegg – Chytil – Gauthier
Goodrow – Rooney – Reaves
Barron is skating as the extra #NYR

Dryden Hunt to the second line has worked, even if he and Barclay Goodrow are a bit miscast there. It seems they are swapping 2RW/4LW jobs whenever there is a shakeup. McKegg as the 3LW makes zero sense, since the Rangers need offense and McKegg provides less than zero offense. Morgan Barron was rotating with him, so perhaps there’s hope he gets that spot instead.
I still question why Barron is with the Rangers if he’s just going to be a healthy scratch. Why not send him to Hartford to get minutes?
