Rangers head into Nashville on a 2-0-1 stretch thanks in large part to Igor Shesterkin, who is also 2-0-1 on the season, with a .949 Save%. He's allowed just 1 or 2 goals n regulation during each of those games, the OT game being a 3-2 loss on home ice to Dallas.

Morgan Barron looks like he might get a game tonight, which would mark the 24th player to dress for the Rangers, in this the 5th game of the season. It looks as if Julien Gauthier will sit out to make room for Barron.

As noted in another thread, the plan is to start with Panarin on the Zibanejad-Kreider line, with Lafreniere moving down to play with Chytil and Blais. Rooney will center Goodrow and Hunt, with some combination of McKegg-Barron-Reaves on the 4th line.

Defense remains the same, Shesterkin expected to start.

Nashville have played 3 going 1-2-0, winning their last one 2-1 over Los Angeles (the losses coming to Seattle and Carolina). This is their fourth straight home game, before they head out for a two-game road trip, their first of the season. Each of the three games have been decided by one goal, with Nashville averaging around 33 shots on net.

Juuse Saros - netminder, has been pretty good to start the year stopping 76 of the 82 shots faced, for a .927 Save% and 2.03 GAA

Seven different players have scored for the Predators this season, each registering a goal. Mikael Granlund leads the team with 4 points, followed by Filip Forsberg with 3.

Looking forward to Barron playing. Maybe Gallant is expecting more out of Lunkvist and pissing around in practice with Hajek might just have been a situation where He sending a message to Lunkvist gotta be going or could be sitting. Will be interesting to see if he steps it up.

Refs are clueless. Nashville has been taking penalties all game. Two, the faceoff redneck scorers have no fucking clue what they are watching. There was no way the faceoffs were even. Rangers won about 80% in that period. It seems the stupid shit kickers in Nashville don't realize that you don't have to draw a puck back to win a faceoff. It's who gains control eventually.

Mike Hunt missed from right in front


Imagine looking up as a goaltender and seeing Hunt and Goodrow coming in on you 2 on 1

Good road win against a hungry team... I thought the Preds played hard.

Shesty is Hank 2.0 - it all rests on his narrow shoulders. I hope he does not get hurt.
Blais has some serious skills, loves to finish checks and loves to take an occasional dumb penalty. Although, the x check penalty was the result of the Pred holding on to Blais' legs.
Chytil showing some offense - playing with Laf and Blais helps
The D is still helter skelter, but the Preds were very aggressive in the Rangers end all game
Lundqvist needs to hit the weight room and the food line

The refs let a lot of preds stick fouls and trips go. Blais was tripped right before his interference penalty. Looks like the refs are in midseason form already.

Another road win is good stuff.

Yes it’s important to realize average goaltending and the Rangers are 0-3 on this trip. That being said similar goaltending in the past and the Rangers still lost those types of games. I’m encouraged by Gallant sticking with his lineup changes more than Quinn, and not being scared to throw Blais up the lineup, using Lafrenierre how he is, and I’m looking forward to Kakko’s return and utilization. Gallant has a advantage of playing in the league, going back to junior coaching picking up on all the new nuances, onto the NHL and some success, but lingering questions why did Florida and Las Vegas get rid of him. A mystery indeed with all things here pointing as a work in progress but seemingly on the right track.
And Hunt brings decent value for the buck he’s getting. It’s so easy to replace him with a $5,000,000 player, except you can’t. . And Mckegg for that matter to good value for his buck a perfect experienced callup guy. Barron is getting a shot he performs and a bubble guy like Hunt, Gautier ect are probably gone. All in all so far Gallant has these guys working consistently a lot harder than Quinn.

Yeah, I've been impressed with Blais, I knew they thought he had more offensive upside, but his hands have proven to be much better than I anticipated. I think the biggest challenge with these guys who are physical is consistency....it's hard to go out and do that every night, just wears the body down...so if he can figure a way to balance it a bit better and get some more consistency, then I think he'll be around more years here.

While Blais' play has been a pleasant surprise, I think the most surprising of the bunch has to be Reaves.  I never realized he was such a good (and fast) skater as wel as defensively responsible in all zones.  Most "enforcers" do not have those qualities.
