… the Rangers better recall Miller immediately!!!! Just messing with you guys. Although, if the Rangers offense remains as dormant as it's been, he'll be back in a Blueshirt sooner rather than later.
…speaking of calling players up, the worst thing the Rangers could do with Kreider is recall him if he has a hot start to the season. The kid still has a lot to learn about the pro game and I'd love for the Rangers to keep him in Hartford no matter what until January and at that point assess where he's at.
…first a fight on opening night and now his first professional goal? All down hill from here for McIlrath. I kid, I kid. Looks like Mr. Beukeboom is having a positive effect on the kid. At least initially.
…man, I'm really hoping Kristo isn't nothing more than a very good AHL player.
…two points in two games to start the season for Mashinter, who, after eventually being recalled, will likely be in Hart Trophy contention by the end of the season.
Here's some post game reaction…
