Torts briefing excerpts; a d-change?...and the flight playlist

According to a Tweet from Jim Cerny of the Rangers website,  Anton Stralman was skating with Michael Del Zotto today, perhaps signalling that Tim Erixon will sit, a change for tomorrow. We'll report more from the morning skate.

In that vein, Torts spoke about the evaluation process going on: "What are we going to do on our back end? You know, what are our lines going to be? And that's not getting too far ahead. We haven't been in this situation before; we're in with a number of games left. We still have some work to do to try to get where we want to be and we're always trying to win every game, but also, we have some questions as far as, if we remain healthy, what is the lineup going to be when you get to the real stuff? So we do have some evaluation. We're going through that right now, some of the pairs we've had with defense and some of the line combinations. Have we got all the answers? No. So that will continue. "
