Mashinter Watch: Scores In Whale Loss Last Night

Yesterday, I posted about how the newly acquired CT Whale player Brandon Mashinter could be someone who sparks this Rangers team. While they obviously didn't need him last night, the fact that John Tortorella doesn't feel comfortable giving Mike Rupp (4:28) or Stu Bickel (3:27) more than five minutes of ice time, means there's still a need for a fourth line energy guy on this team.

So I decided I'm going to do a "Mashinter Watch" on the blog to follow along with his performances with the Whale. And it got off to a great start last night, as Mashinter scored in the Whale's 3-2 loss to Springfield. The goal was Mashinter's third in the eight games since joining Connecticut. He also has four assists and two fights.

Watch Mashinter's goal (4:40 mark)…

…loving Mashinter's speed for a big guy. If he can keep this play going, the Rangers are going to have no choice but to call him up very soon.

Also in the game, J.T. Miller scored his eighth goal of the season (5:05 mark of above video), while Dylan McIlrath did this…

…holy crap those two were throwing bombs!
