Marian Gaborik Out Vs. Predators; 7D 11 Forwards In Lineup

When the New York Rangers take on the Nashville Predators tonight they will be without star forward Marian Gaborik who is said to be sick with the flu and remained at the hotel.  This is obviously a huge blow to the team as Gaborik played very well last night in response to being called out by his coach after Wednesday's game.  The team does know how to play without Gaborik so if there is a silver lining that would be it.  In other lineup news since Derek Boogaard is still unable to go the team will dress 7 defense with Michal Rozsival's return and 11 forwards.  It will be interesting to see how they work out lines and ice time with this development as other guys will have increased opportunities up front to show something.  While many of us would love to see Matt Gilroy get a shot on the wing he is said to be staying back on defense.

The lines I would use:
Christensen and White as extra forwards to start
