DQ said Panarin will play the top line with Zibanejad and Buch tonight.— Vince Z. Mercogliano (@vzmercogliano) May 3, 2021
That means Kakko will play with Strome and Laf. Kravtsov will play with Chytil and Blackwell.
That's your top 9. #NYR
Based on jersey colors, it looks like top 9 will have a couple tweaks:— Vince Z. Mercogliano (@vzmercogliano) April 30, 2021
Laf – Zib – Buch
Panarin – Strome – Kravtsov
Blackwell – Chytil – Kakko
I'll confirm it once we see some line rushes, but that's my best guess based on what I'm seeing. #NYR
