3:05 PM: Igor Shesterkin is starting and Ryan Carpenter was called up to be a spare forward and will not play tonight.
1:27 PM: The Rangers have announced that Ryan Carpenter has been called up from Hartford and that Julien Gauthier has been placed on IR.
Carpenter’s call up likely means that either Vitali Kravtsov or Artemi Panarin, who didn’t practice yesterday, or another forward will be a game-time decision tonight.
Carpenter has nine goals and 4 assists in 13 AHL games since being sent down.
Gauthier left Thursday’s game after he collided with Sammy Blais. It was the second straight game that Gauthier had left.
