Rangers line changes: Gauthier, Braun in; Schneider, McKegg out
Looks like Gallant is shaking things up a bit after last night’s 🐎 💩
Kreider – Zib – Vatrano
Panarin – Brodzinski – Copp
Laf – Chytil – Gauthier
Motte – Goodrow – Reaves
Strome is skating as an extra, but assume Jonny B is a placeholder in his spot #NYR

It is also expected that Jonny Brodzinski will be out, assuming Ryan Strome is good to go. The lines are starting to take shape as the Rangers get healthy. It’s safe to assume Kaapo Kakko will go in for Gauthier when healthy, and Kevin Rooney will go in for Ryan Reaves (swapping with Barclay Goodrow as well).
Games like yesterday happen, but the good news is that while the Rangers looked bad while still controlling most of the play. Silver linings for the win.
