John Gianone at MSG Networks reports that Del Zotto and Callahan are not expected to play tonight and that Jeff Woywitka will take Del Zotto’s spot on defense.
…shocked that Woywitka’s in there. I know Torts said he wasn’t happy with Eminger’s performance since returning from shoulder injury, but I didn’t realize he was that far deep in the chateau bow-wow.
Neither Ryan Callahan nor Michael Del Zotto takes part in #NYR optional morning skate, though nothing unusual about that…

…Rangers going to need another team effort if these two are out of the line-up tonight, especially against the Bolts who are tough on home ice (19-9-2). Always helps to have Lundqvist back there, just in case.
Meanwhile the Rangers tweet out this pic of Assistant GM Jim Schoefeld giving John Scott a lesson on the Rangers system…
…thought Scott looked pretty good in limited action last night. Seems like a team first guy who should fit in well in the Rangers locker room.
