With the recent injury of Wojtek Wolski, a Left Wing adjustment was necessary across the entire lineup by New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella. Tortorella has moved left winger Derek Stepan to the first line, not bad for any NHL player in their sophomore year. Stepan will notably be paired with superstars Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik.
The full lines (in order) are as follows:
Derek Stepan-Brad Richards-Marian Gaborik
Brandon Dubinsky-Artem Anisimov-Ryan Callahan
Ruslan Fedotenko-Brian Boyle-Brandon Prust
Mike Rupp-Erik Christensen-Mats Zuccarello
Defensive pairings are to remain the same. Tortorella is infamous for adjusting his lines on a frequent basis, so it will be interesting to see if this sticks.
