NY Rangers lines tonight: Lindgren still out; Motte to return?
Per Colin Stephenson, it looks like Ryan Lindgren won’t be returning tonight as previously thought. Instead, the NY Rangers lines tonight may feature the return of Tyler Motte, who was in a non-contact jersey as recently as yesterday. That said, the Rangers haven’t returned Jonny Brodzinski to Hartford, so perhaps this is just a maintenance day for Motte.
At the #NYR extras morning skate, that's Ryan Lindgren and Jaroslav Halak participating. So Igor will start in goal, and Lindgren won't be in the lineup. It also suggests that Tyler Motte, who's not participating, may be playing this evening. pic.twitter.com/rCrPXSuETD

With or without Lindgren/Motte, this is another test for the Rangers in Buffalo. The Sabres are a good offensive team, and given how the Rangers have played defense lately, this could be a track meet. The Blueshirts need to clamp things down, and without Lindgren, it will still be tough.
