Tim Erixon was scratched due to an injury he sustained in the previous game.
Pavel Valentenko scored the game winner, while Mats Zuccarello chipped in with his fourth goal of the season.
...it's only a matter of time before Voros is skating on a line with Avery for the Rangers. lol. In all seriousness, it's nice to see Voros contributing.
...let's hope Erixon injury isn't serious.
...Valentenko has now scored in two straight. Wonder if there is any chance he is on the Rangers radar as a possible call-up if Torts can't gain any confidence in the third defensive pair.
I wondered that about Tank too Kevin. And with Erixon close (before the injury), can someone explain the Stralman signing to me?
@CinciMike The way I see it, nothing wrong with 1-year insurance for almost no money. God forbid another D gets injured (likely blocking a shot) there's an NHL vet there just in case. Worst comes to worst, he gets waived.
@_Jack Thanks for the backup on Avery post. Those guys have serious mental issues.
