New York Rangers forward Barclay Goodrow and defenceman Ryan Lindgren have been ruled out of Game 2 against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday.

Penguins blueliner Brian Dumoulin has also been ruled ruled out with a lower-body injury.

Mark Friedman will take Dumoulin’s place on the Penguins blue line. The Toronto native scored one goal and added four assists in 26 games for the Pens this season.

The Rangers will tap in defenceman Justin Braun and forward Dryden Hunt to replace Lindgren and Goodrow. New York will look to bounce back from a crushing triple overtime loss to Pittsburgh in Game 1.
