In a season marked by injuries and unforeseen factors, Rangers coach Peter Laviolette implemented a personnel change, bringing Tyler Pitlick back into the lineup after an eight-game absence due to a lower-body injury.

This move resulted in Nick Bonino being a healthy scratch for the first time this season. Peter Laviolette emphasized Pitlick's previous success with Goodrow and Vesey in handling tough minutes.
Despite the Rangers' 2-1 loss to the Kings, Laviolette praised Pitlick's performance during the game.
During the team's strong stretch, Pitlick formed a potent trio with Goodrow and Vesey, outperforming the line centered by Bonino in goals and expected goals for percentage.
Peter Laviolette acknowledged the difficulty in delivering such news to players but stressed the necessity of lineup decisions.
Additionally, Erik Gustafsson was sidelined due to a lower-body injury, categorized as day-to-day. Zac Jones replaced Gustafsson, impressing Peter Laviolette with his performance, especially in terms of skating, puck movement, and offensive contributions.
Jones, displaying a positive attitude, seized the opportunity to re-enter the lineup amid lineup changes and injuries.
