Chytil and Howden return to lineup against Caps

Brett Howden and Filip Chytil will return to the Rangers lineup today against the Capitals.

Chytil has been scratched the past two games and Howden has been out since the first period after the All-Star break with an injury.

On Howden, David Quinn said on Sunday, “quick thinker, understands the game, competes, good stick skills, very coachable and willing to learn. A lot there to work with and build off the good that he did early in the season.” (NYR)





On Chytil, “I’ve liked his, it just seems that in the week he has been out, it’s a different Fil Chytil personality wise on-top of what we have seen in practice. He’s gone to another level with his work ethic and demeanor and felt it was a good game to get him in.” (NYR)
