Marty Biron is expected to start tonight.
…geez, Lindberg and Fast will be done with the shift before Pyatt gets over the boards.
…minus Pyatt, this group of forwards has a ton of speed. Wouldn't mind seeing a bit of a track meet after last night's game which resembled a lot of what we saw last season. Sans the blocked shots.
…very interested in how McIlrath impacts this game as Rangers/Flyers is always a physical affair that usually ends with a few fistacuffs.
Meanwhile, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that JT Miller, who tweaked his hamstring during Thursday's conditioning test, is back on the ice today with non-game group.
…good to hear he's back on the ice, but this hamstring injury has really put him behind the eightball. Will be virtually impossible for him to make the opening night roster at this point unless he's able to recover quickly and light it up during the west coast swing of the Rangers preseason schedule.
…i wasn't 100% convinced he was going to make the roster out of camp before the injury, but this is disappointing as I was looking forward to Miller taking the next step in his development during the preseason.
Also of note, the Rangers have announced that that individual tickets for the team’s 2013-14 regular season home games at Madison Square Garden will go on-sale to the public on Thursday, September 26 beginning at 12:00 p.m. Limited tickets will be available on Ticketmaster via NYRangers.com, Ticketmaster charge-by-phone, 866-858-0008 and Ticketmaster outlets.
