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, 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.

Prediction: New York Rangers 2 – Boston Bruins 0
This should be a fun matchup between two franchises that are leading their respective divisions. It will be a close matchup, but the New York Rangers should come away with the victory for tonight. Especially with the Milan Lucic situation, it is still a distraction that the Bruins are dealing with.
