Injuries

New York Rangers

Filip Chytil – Concussion/Upper Body – OUT (On IR)

It was expected that Chytil was going to return since he started skating for the Blueshirts in practice. However, Chytil’s concussion recovery has been an issue.

Kaapo Kakko – Knee/Lower Body – OUT (On LTIR)

Kakko just can’t catch a break this season. He was demoted from the 1st line to the third line and now he is on LTIR after he suffered that brutal injury in their latest game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Adam Fox – Knee/Lower Body – Questionable (Will Make His Return)

Adam Fox is back! After many games on the LTIR due to his injury, he will return tonight.

Detroit Red Wings

Patrick Kane – Hip – OUT

Well, the Red Wings actually did it. They finally brought in Kane. However, he won’t be playing in this game as he is still recovering from his hip injury, but it will be interesting to see how he does in Detroit.

Dylan Larkin – Undisclosed – OUT

Justin Holl – Undisclosed – Questionable (Day to Day)

Prediction: New York Rangers 3 – Detroit Red Wings 2

This will be an intriguing game for both sides. I think the ultra-hot Red Wings will play this game close. Although there is a lot of hype with Patrick Kane signing with the team, I think the bigger return is Adam Fox who will be back to help this defense that performed terribly against the Buffalo Sabres. The Rangers should bounce back in this matchup and beat the Red Wings.
