Kaapo Kakko fitting in well on Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome's line

If one preseason game is enough to make meaningful judgments, it looks like Kaapo Kakko should fit in just fine on that Artemi Panarin-Ryan Strome line.

The threesome looked to be in midseason form in the Rangers’ second preseason game Tuesday, a 3-2 win over a Boston Bruins team minus most of its big-name players at Madison Square Garden. Panarin, especially, appeared ready for the season to start, assisting on the first two goals, and then scoring the winner on a breakaway at 19:00 of the second period.

"Yeah, it feels like he's always ready,’’ Kakko said of Panarin.
