Steve Fogarty uncorks a heavy wrister from between the dots to give Blue a 4-3 lead. 1:26 left in 2nd.— Kris Baker (@SabresProspects) August 5, 2012
J.T. Miller (2011 - 1st) tallied his second assist in two games for Team White.
Jess Rubenstein at The Prospect Park describes Miller's assist...
"Miller set up Stefan Matteau for a first period goal by faking a shot to draw everyone in then fed Matteau for an easy one timer. Those folks who are thinking Miller will be a 3rd line player are sadly mistaken."After playing in the opening day scrimmage Brady Skjei (2012 - 1st) was a scratch on Day 2.
...being a first time participant at Evaluation Camp, it's got to be a big boost to Fogarty's chances of making the team scoring the game winner.
...i guess Fogarty's performance was buoyed by his interview with TheNYRBlog's Adam Herman. LOL.
...after playing so well on Day 1, was surprised to see Skjei as a healthy scratch. There are a lot of defensemen in camp so I'm assuming this was just his turn to sit.
Here's Miller discussing evaluation camp and what he learned playing for CT Whale at the end of last season...
Despite not playing yesterday, reader Darrin D. sends me this pick of Skjei from Day 1...
Despite his age, I imagine Miller's going to get a long hard look at training camp this year. Might be hard to resist the temptation, even though starting the season with the Whale might be the most logical option.
Darrin also said his son got autographs from all 3 NYR prospects and were very polite & gracious about it. Great prospects on the ice, even better people off the ice.
I was excited to see the "sadly mistaken" line about Millers minutes until I realized it was from a fellow Ranger honk. But seriously I think Sather thought Dubi was so expendable because Miller is cut from the same cloth and may even have more upside!
