Laviolette Rotating Lines During Practice

Published April 7, 2024 at 5:51 PM

The Rangers are preparing for this upcoming matchup against the Montreal Canadiens, and held practice earlier today. Head coach Peter Laviolette is making adjustments to the lines, it's looking like Jack Roslovic could be a healthy scratch tonight. Jimmy Vesey was skating with Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider.

Zac Jones also skated with Braden Schneider, so he also might come in for Erik Gustafsson.

Laviolette addresses the media, and said lineup changes are "just a rotation thing." He also said the reason for Roslovic's low time on ice last game was because he liked how the bottom six was playing and wanted to use them more.

When asked whether he needs to see more to solidify that first line for the playoffs:

"I don't want to read anymore into it."

It'll be something to keep an eye on with the final five games of the regular season.
