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.

Pressure Points vs Winnipeg

How your New York Rangers play tonight against the Jets, in desperate need of two points in the standings, will tell an awful lot about the remainder of the season---and perhaps provide an indicator of action at Wednesday's trade deadline. The Rangers have about $6 million space under the cap. There's some holes for sure, but as I've said before, doubt Marian Gaborik will be moved before the offseason. Maybe we'll see a minor move or two. 

Oh, and can we put aside the Sean Avery nonsense. All this hubbub about a tweet? Please. 

The Rangers won't have a morning skate Monday, so we won't know until pregame about line combinations or scratches:  Arron Asham, I'm guessing, will dress, with Kris Newbury back in Hartford.

That's all for now, I leave you to your own devices. Enjoy the first afternoon games of the baseball season----and April Fools' Day
