Panarin is out due to an upper-body injury, while Copp is dealing with a lower-body injury. Both players left Tuesday’s game early against the Carolina Hurricanes. New York head coach Gerard Gallant said he doesn’t believe that either injury is serious. After the game, Gallant was asked if he would sit some of the Rangers’ stars for the final two games. He said, “I’ll think about it tomorrow morning.”
Panarin leads the team in scoring, with 22 goals and 74 assists this season. Acquired at the deadline, Copp has scored eight goals and ten assists in 16 games with New York to give him 21 goals and 32 assists in 72 games this season.
