Brad Richards, obviously not himself after the boarding from Patrick Kaleta, is scratched tonight. He didn't finish the morning skate and wasn't available to the media. Richards, 32, looked stiff during the skate, and Micheal Haley will make his Rangers debut.
It will be the first game that Richards (2-11-13) has missed this season.
Haley is a banger, with 151 PIM in 43 NHL games, mostly with the Islanders. He'll wear No. 32
