Corey Potter has been called up from Hartford and is on the ice with the Rangers for practice.
Potter will presumably take the place of the injured Wade Redden, who has a lower body injury and is not on the ice.
Update, 11:51 a.m.: Potter is expected to play tomorrow, in what will be his first NHL game. He skated with Dmitri Kalinin (can you say “headfirst into the fire?”) while Paul Mara moved to the left side with Dan Girardi.
“I guess you’re always waiting around for injuries,” Potter said. “But you try not to assume and think about it too much. But I guess they wanted me to get in some games and that’s fine with me.”
Some other notes:
<li>Blair Betts took part in practice but is still questionable for tomorrow with what is believed to be a shoulder injury.
“It’s more about the pain,” Betts said.
<li>The Calgary Flames are skating here at 2 p.m. I’d like to hang around and talk to Dion Phaneuf about Sean Avery, but I’m pretty sure that topic is now off limits.
