Brendan Smith will make his New York Ranger debut tonight in a road tilt against the Boston Bruins. Dan Girardi is still out of the lineup with his ankle injury, but he isn't the only Ranger that is on the shelf.
Michael Grabner and Jesper Fast are both out of the lineup tonight, so Pavel Buchnevich is back in a Rangers jersey. He is projected to play on a line with Mika ZIbanejad and Rick Nash. The Rangers other lines will look something like this:
Other NYR lines: Kreider-Stepan-Zuccarello/Vesey-Hayes-Miller/ Pirri-Lindberg-Puempel— Steve Zipay (@stevezipay) March 2, 2017
