New York Rangers-Boston Bruins Pre-Game Lineup And Thoughts


The Rangers take on the Bruins tonight and are looking for their first win of the season.

Arron Asham is a scratch tonight, and Stu Bickel will most likely take his spot at forward.

Why doesn’t this team carry the minimum amount of forwards? We’ll likely never know.

Because Bickel will be used at forward tonight, Steve Eminger will get his chance to impress as the 6th defenseman (praise the lord).

Henrik Lundqvist is also going for his first win of the season. He’s gotta be pretty frustrated after his last outing so hopefully the Bruins feel his wrath tonight.

Projected Lines:

Nash-Richards-Gaborik

Kreider-Stepan-Callahan

Hagelin-Boyle-Pyatt

Rupp-Halpern-Bickel

Defensive Pairings:

Mcdonagh-Girardi

Staal-Stralman

Del Zotto-Eminger

Starting Goalie:

Lundqvist

Pump up song for tonight:
