Among the rare sights at the MSG Training Center:
Jaromir Jagr and Henrik Lundqvist as the last two players on the ice, staying on for an extra 40 minutes.
This was noted to Jagr when he finally left the ice, that he’s never been one to skate so long, especially the day after an away game.
“Yeah, but we got embarrassed,” the Captain said. “I don’t like that.”
Some more notes:
If you assume that Artem Anisimov is definitely going down in addition to either Stephen Valiquette or Al Montoya, that leaves either Nigel Dawes or Brandon Dubinsky vying for the final forward spot. From my perspective, it doesn’t look like Dubinsky is going anywhere, so the Rangers could conceivably send down Dawes, a goalie, and Anisimov to get to 23. If they sent down Thomas Pock or Marc Staal, they’d be at 22.
Like it or not, Jason Strudwick isn’t going anywhere, either.
Anisimov worked in with different lines. Sean Avery, still nursing an undisclosed injury, skated briefly before leaving.
