7:33PM: Chris Kreider is IN, Brendan Smith is out.
6:52PM: David Quinn spoke before the game and said (NYR):
- Will Strome and Panarin be apart, “we’ll see.”
- On Panarin and Zibanejad being on different lines, “I like it when both of those lines are playing well, it gives people something to think about. That being said, we put Mika and Bread together toward the end of the game the other night and we might do that from time to time depending on how the game is going and who is playing well and who is not. Obviously there are times you let people play through some tough times but there are times when maybe you need a little change.”
- “Di Giuseppe will play regardless.”
Mika Zibanejad, who missed practice with the flu on Tuesday, will play. (NYR)
