Yes, Rangers give Buchnevich (and Holden) a chance in Game 4

It wouldn’t be a New York Rangers postseason game without fans being a bit upset about Alain Vigneault’s lineup decisions. They’re even more reliable than Henrik Lundqvist in net.

Still, some of the louder complaints are muted heading into Game 4 against the Montreal Canadiens, though it remains to be seen if it will be to the extent to quiet complaints.

As discussed earlier, the Rangers will indeed play Pavel Buchnevich tonight, with Nick Holden also drawing into the lineup. Tanner Glass’ shocking game-winning goal could only carry him so far, so he’s out (along with Kevin Klein on defense).

Perhaps this will give the Rangers a shot in the arm and/or better chance of gaining more puck possession against the Habs tonight? Perhaps.

But that doesn’t mean Vigneault gets an A+ from every fan.
