Rangers forward Artemi Panarin is in the lineup against the Bruins on Saturday, according to USA TODAY’s Vince Mercogliano.

Panarin returned to practice on Wednesday after taking a leave of absence from the Rangers on Feb. 22 following the team denying accusations of a “fabricated” report out of Russia regarding Panarin.

The Rangers went 4-4 without Panarin, who has 18 points (five goals, 13 assists) in 14 games this season.
