OTTAWA -- It appears the only lineup change for the New York Rangers heading into Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series with the Ottawa Senators will be the insertion of Carl Hagelin in the place of Brian Boyle, who is out with a concussion.
Hagelin was suspended the past three games for an elbow to the head of Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson in Game 2.
Hagelin will likely return to his place on the left wing with center Brad Richards and right wing Marian Gaborik on the top line. With Boyle out, the Rangers could turn to Brandon Dubinsky to center the team's third line, which has matched up with Ottawa's top line that features Jason Spezza and Milan Michalek.
As is customary in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, lineups are subject to the change, but this is likely what the Rangers will look like at Scotiabank Place.
Carl Hagelin - Brad Richards - Marian Gaborik
Artem Anisimov - Derek Stepan - Ryan Callahan
Ruslan Fedotenko - Brandon Dubinsky - Brandon Prust
Chris Kreider - John Mitchell - Mike Rupp
Ryan McDonagh - Dan Girardi
Marc Staal - Anton Stralman
Michael Del Zotto - Stu Bickel
