New York Rangers
Filip Chytil – Concussion/Upper Body – OUT (On IR)
Chytil is still dealing with his concussion recovery. With the concerns of how that recovery is and the fact that he has not even skated yet, Chytil will obviously not play tonight and he could be a candidate to go on LTIR if he does not get healthier.
Adam Fox – Knee/Lower Body – OUT (On LTIR)
Fox is still on LTIR, so he will obviously not play tonight. It is a good sign that he is finally practicing with the team which is a positive.
Ryan Ellis – Back – OUT (On IR)
Rasmus Ristolainen – Lower Body – Questionable (Likely a Game Time Decision *Recently Activated from LTIR*)
Prediction: New York Rangers 3 – Philadelphia Flyers 2 in Overtime
This is an intriguing matchup for both teams. It will be interesting to see if the Flyers will utilize Ristolainen if he officially plays in this game as he has not looked great as a Flyer since they acquired him from the Buffalo Sabers. No matter what, this game should be a close one for both teams, but the Blueshirts will take the win in this matchup, but it will be done in overtime.
