Glass isn't on the first line, Pens fans would spontaneously combust. If it's helpful here are the lines from the morning skate:

Kunitz-Crosby-Gibbons
Jokinen-Malkin-Neal
Glass-Sutter-Megna
Zolnierczyk-Adams-Engelland

Glass is on our third line, gibbons is on crosbys wing. Your OP has it backwards. Also Pyatt is hurt and not playing

Is it true that Letang had a small stroke?

EDIT: Yes.

Yeah, but this Rangers team is also a much different team than they were early in the year.

We smacked the Pens early in the season. Why is everyone so selective with their data?

As an aside, I'd like to see someone put that scum bag Kunitz through the glass tonight.

I think it's hysterical that Kunitz made the Olympic team to begin with.

Quality-wise, perhaps, but in such a short tournament I'd value existing chemistry above quality.

Haha, okay, well that makes a lot more sense than having Tanner Glass on the first line.

Yep. Because Crosby is sooo hard to play with.

Hoping for a good performance tonight. I'll be at the game hopefully not being annoyed by too many Pens "fans".

Every frikking line Zucc has been on has been consistent. I even wrote a darn long post prior to the season about how every player lined up with Zucc suddenly receives praise in media and here for how much they have upped their game.
I truly believe MZA is the x-factor. Not the sudden emergence of Pouliot or Brass

I would love to put Zucc and Kreider on a line and see where that goes. Or really anything breaking up that first line just for a little bit. As others have said, it's becoming slightly stale.

At any rate, we should be able to come out hard tonight and I have a good feeling about this one.

Just like the Isles game before the Blues

It felt like we had a 2 game losing streak already last night

Thats what made it such a TERRIBLE loss

Reverse it and make yesterday okay

Likewise on all counts. Hopefully it goes better than last month.

Because it's not consistent with their narrative of Rangers suck and only beat up on bad teams.

I'd take beating the Pens and losing to Edamametown 10/10 times over the other way around.

Losing streak would be unfortunate. LGR.

Well, the stroke happened last week and was just made public today, so I imagine the team already knew (they at least knew that it was serious). I doubt it has much effect on their play; they're going to be tough to beat no matter what.
