Expected NYR Lineup vs Isles (no Sauer or Wolski)

Expected lines for tomorrow's game against the Islanders (via Andrew Gross):
Stepan-Richards-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan
Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust
Rupp-Christensen-Zuccarello

McDonagh-Girardi
Del Zotto-Erixon
Woywitka-Eminger

Sauer is injured and will not play on Long Island due to a shoulder injury. Wolski still remains injured because of a groin injury.


The most notable change in the forward lines is Dubinksy re-joining Anisimov and Callahan on the second line. Dubinsky started the season with Richards and Gaborik but Tortorella said that he wanted to re-united Dubinksy with Callahan and Anisimov because of their chemistry together last season. This gives second year NHLer Derek Stepan a chance to get some significant playing time with two of the elite forwards in the NHL.


And in case you didn't already know, King Henrik will be between the pipes. On the other end of the ice, it's no surprise that Rick DiPietro won't be.
