Stepan Might Head to Europe; McDonagh Leads Barys to Another Win

Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Ryan Callahan, Dan Girardi, Anton Stralman, Taylor Pyatt and Derek Stepan participated in an informal skate this afternoon at the MSG training facilty.

Gross took the time to speak with Stepan about his plans if the lockout continues…

“It’s tough to say right now,” Stepan added about heading to Europe or Russia. “I’m just trying to get myself ready to play. If push comes to shove and I have to go to Europe then that might be something I have to do and I’ll look at that down the road.”

…he should start looking soon because despite yesterday's optimism this looks like it may drag on for a little longer.

As for thos Rangers playersalready overseas, Ryan McDonagh had an assist in Barys 6-1 win over Donbass earlier today.

McDonagh had three shots on goal in 20:00 of ice time.

…nice to see McD's ice time drop a little. Wonder if Torts made a call.
