Lundqvist starts and Fogarty is in

As expected, it’ll be Henrik Lundqvist getting the start in Game Two. The early reports were wrong about Igor Shesterkin. I feel bad for him. Steven Fogarty will play on the fourth line.

The Rangers need to win this game. They’ll have to do it without Jesper Fast. Fogarty is being plugged in by David Quinn on the fourth line. That means Kaapo Kakko moves up to the second line and Julien Gauthier is on line three. Here’s your Game Two lineup.
