Rangers Roundup: Back to practice, Lemieux suspension and more news

The Rangers are back on the ice today and tomorrow before they head out to Toronto. The team will be inside the NHL bubble and do so with some great news with regards to COVID-19 cases, as only two new positive cases were found last week.

Big question today is if Pavel Buchnevich will participate.

Brendan Lemieux suspended 2 games

Yesterday, the NHL Department of Player Safety announced the amount of games Brendan Lemieux will be suspended for hitting Joonas Donskoi in Colorado. The gritty winger will miss both games 1 and 2 of the Qualifying round against the Hurricanes.

This actually hurts Lemieux a lot more than it does the Rangers. I will dive deeper on that later today, so make sure to stick around.
