Per Katie Carrera, Adam Oates goes back to his old top trio against the Rangers, while Jason Chimera moves into the top six, with Philipp Grubauer in net (as usual). Here are tonight's probable lines and defensive pairings:
Jason Chimera - Mikhail Grabovski - Troy Brouwer
Martin Erat - Brooks Laich - Joel Ward
Eric Fehr - - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
John Erskine - Connor Carrick
That leaves Aaron Volpatti, Steve Oleksy and either Braden Holtby or Michal Neuvirth as a healthy scratch (with the other backing up Grubauer), and Jack Hillen the lone injured scratch.
