The New York Rangers will be playing in front of their fans for the first time this season on Monday night, and head coach Peter Laviolette is making some changes to his lineup ahead of the big game.

The two notable changes to the lineup are a change to the Rangers' fourth line as well as a change to their third defensive pairing. Rem Pitlick will be replaced by Jimmy Vesey on the fourth line tonight while young defenseman Zac Jones will sit this one out, being replaced by veteran defenseman Erik Gustafsson.

Here is what the lineup looked like during the morning skate:



This could change ahead of the game however with Ryan Lindgren's return up in the air ahead of tonight's game. Lindgren was on the ice during the morning skate but Laviolette would not confirm his presence in the lineup, calling him a game time decision.
