Despite the injuries that have befallen the Rangers since the start of November, they still keep winning.

Since the 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on November 2nd, they have gone 4-0-1, with the one loss coming in overtime after the Rangers blew a 3-0 lead.
They have done this without ace defenseman Adam Fox, second center Filip Chytil, and goaltender Igor Shesterkin.
Even second goaltender, Jonathan Quick has also missed a game due to an upper-body injury and the Rangers had to recall Louis Domingue from the Hartford Wolf Pack.
One massive reason for the Rangers sustained excellence, is the move for Vincent Trocheck to fill in for Chytil as second center. Just look at the numbers.
The 30 year old has been on fire. In the four games since he entered that second line with Artemi Panarin, and Alexis Lafrenière, he has three goals and seven points total. He's currently on a four game point streak.
Oh, and if that wasn't impressive enough, he leads the league in face-off percentage with 64.4.
With his excellent recent play, we beg the question, should Trocheck remain on the second line when Chytil returns?
It'll be a good problem to have with the return of Chytil. I'm of the believer of, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Someone did suggest pushing Chytil to the third line to form the kid line 2.0.
The new kid line would be Cuylle-Chytil-Kakko, with that line having a lot of potential to be explosive with all the young talent.
I trust Laviolette will know the best course for the team and will make the right decision.
