Rangers vs. Coyotes Open Game Thread

The New York Rangers (14-13-3, 31 points) have been off since Monday, and they should be very fresh against an Arizona Coyotes (13-15-2, 28 points) squad that played on Thursday vs. the Buffalo Sabres.

Arizona has lost four games in a row, and the Rangers are looking to rebound from a 6-3 loss at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Blueshirts are getting some much needed help with the return of Pavel Buchnevich and Mats Zuccarello to the lineup, and here are the projected lines.

New York Rangers

Filip Chytil — Mika Zibanejad — Mats Zuccarello

Chris Kreider — Kevin Hayes — Pavel Buchnevich

Vladislav Namestnikov — Brett Howden — Jesper Fast

Jimmy Vesey — Ryan Strome — Matt Beleskey

Marc Staal — Neal Pionk

Brady Skjei — Tony DeAngelo

Fredrik Claesson — Brendan Smith

Henrik Lundqvist

Arizona Coyotes

Richard Panik — Derek Stepan — Christian Fischer

Lawson Crouse — Nick Schmaltz — Clayton Keller

Nick Cousins — Brad Richardson — Josh Archibald

Mario Kempe — Michael Bunting — Conor Garland

Oliver Ekman-Larsson — Kevin Connauton

Alex Goligoski — Niklas Hjalmarsson

Jakob Chychrun — Jordan Oesterle
