The Sharks will ice the same lineup against the Rangers tonight that they’ve used in their first two games this season. Martin Jones gets the start in goal while Micheal Haley and Ryan Carpenter appear to be healthy scratches again.
All of this hot breaking news comes from Friend of the Blog Kevin Kurz who was out at the morning skate today.
The Rangers have some injury news to report, including Dan Girardi ruled out with a hip flexor (which frankly is bad news for the Sharks) and Pavel Buchnevich out with back spasms. Here’s a look at the projected lines for both teams.
