Mashinter Watch: Game Winning Goal; McIlrath Stands Up for Teammate (Updated: Mash is Recalled!)

Update, 12:14 p.m.:


Original Post:
Brandon Mashinter scored the game winning goal on a perfect give and go with Brandon Segal as the CT Whale defeated Manchester 3-2 yesterday.

Mashinter now has 5g, 6a and three fights in the 14 games since joining the Whale.

…with the Powe injury, there's an outside chance we might actually get to see this kid real soon. Not sure what else the Rangers want to see from Mashinter. He'd be a perfect fit for the fourth line.

Mashinter goal is at the 4:27 mark of the below video.

Meanwhile, Dylan McIlrath proved once again why we all love him as he came to the aid of teammate Mike Vernace and absolutely man-handled Anthony Stewart (1:45 mark)…

…a lot of Rangers fans were upset when no one stood up to Lucic when he face planted Nash into the glass last week. I can assure you that won't be the case when McIlrath is patrolling the blueline for the Blueshirts. Unfortunately that might not be for another year or so.

Steve Eminger also scored in the second game of his conditioning stint.
