He's not going to be on the fourth line. Gross tweeted the line combos and listed that line last. Jesse Spector tweeted the same combos, listing the Stepan line third. So did Gross just tweet the line combos, disregarding "order," or is Stepan really going to get fourth line minutes? I'd say the former is far more likely.

Here is Spector's tweet:

Forwards on ice now for #NYR: Wolski-Richards-Gaborik, Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan, Rupp-Stepan-Zuccarello, Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust!/nydnrangers


It's just pain.
