Blue Notes

Steve Zipay takes you inside the locker room, home and on the road, with the New York Rangers, and also writes about the NHL, off and on the ice.

Jeff Halpern claimed by Montreal; Stu Bickel waived

Interesting. Bickel has 48 hours to clear, expect NYR to make some other move.  Bickel might be a good pickup for Isles.

Miller was on ice early, then left. Not sure if it was disciplinary for bumping Lundqvist when he was stretching.

We'll probably see Halpern, who played in Montreal in 2010-11, next week. Halpern had one assist in 30 games here.
