Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Artem Anisimov was bumped up to the Brad Richards-Ryan Callahan line while Brandon Dubinsky skated with John Mitchel and Mike Rupp.
…Anisimov played one of his stronger games in a month against Buffalo, so why not. Dubinsky better pick it up or he might find himself traded at the deadline. Not that I’m condoning that move.
Leonard adds that John Tortorella would like to see the Anisimov-Stepan-Gaborik line can reunite at some point this season.
The Rangers report that Tortorella says he’s still “not sure” if Steve Eminger will return to the lineup tomorrow vs. Flyers.
…my gut says he’ll be in there.
