In a bit of a head scratcher, Tanner Glass will start on the third line for the Blueshirts in tonight’s Islanders game on Rivalry Night. Yes. You read right. Glass is expected to skate with Oscar Lindberg and J.T. Miller.
The fourth line will have Viktor Stalberg with Jarret Stoll and Dominic Moore. I know Stalberg has been brutal since a good start. But Glass on the third line? Holy moly. It is a rivalry game. So, we’ll see how Tanner performs against bruisers Cal Clutterbuck and Matt Martin.
The rest of the NYR lines:
As expected, Dylan McIlrath is with Keith Yandle while Dan Girardi moves back to the top pair with Ryan McDonagh. Dan Boyle works with Marc Staal.
Face off is approximately 8:08 PM at Barclays Center.
