Practice: Chris Kreider Looks To Be Scratched Tonight/New Lines

10:59AM: Marty Biron is the first goalie off the ice so it is likely he will start tonight for the Rangers.

10:53AM: According to Pat Leonard, the lines at Rangers practice today are:

  • Marian Gaborik, Brad Richards, Ryan Callahan
  • Carl Hagelin, Derek Stepan, Rick Nash
  • Taylor Pyatt, Brian Boyle, JT Miller
  • Darroll Powe, Jeff Halpern, Arron Asham

Chris Kreider appears to be a scratch.


Adam Rotter: My take on this is that it gets Brian Boyle back in the lineup and also allows JT Miller to respond to the struggles he had in the last game. In regards to Chris Kreider, I think he has played well but he is the most obvious candidate to come out if Boyle is to come in and they want to see how JT responds.
