Pavel Buchnevich and Brandon Pirri will be scratched against the Islanders on Thursday.

The rookie sensation has posted six goals and 15 points so far through the first 28 games of his career. Pirri meanwhile is stuck at eight goals and 16 points through 48 games. He has yet to dress during the month of February.

Pavel Buchnevich was moved to the second line Sunday.

Buchnevich practiced alongside Rick Nash and Mika Zibanejad on Sunday while former second liner Jimmy Vesey moved down the depth chart and played with Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fast. The Rangers also put back the line of Chris Kreider, Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello. Buchnevich has six goals and 15 points in 23 games but has only one assist in his last nine contests. Perhaps this will get him going. He is worth owning in deeper pools and all keeper leagues at this time.

Pavel Buchnevich's first career fight will be one for the blooper reel.
