Ryan Lindgren practicing in full; still may not play tomorrow
Per Colin Stephenson, Ryan Lindgern is practicing in full today, taking regular shifts with the rest of the Rangers defensemen. However he is not with his usual partner, Adam Fox. Instead he is rotating with K’Andre Miller on a pair with Jacob Trouba.
Looks like 77 and 23 are a D pair, and 5 and 4. 79 and 55 are rotating with 8.

Naturally, this leaves Niko Mikkola and Adam Fox together, with Ben Harpur and Braden Schneider rounding out the last pair. It’s suggested Lindgren won’t play tomorrow because Harpur is still taking regular rushes with Schneider, signaling he will still be in the lineup.
The Rangers have a first period problem, but that’s not related to Lindgren being out. Getting him back would certainly help, though.
