The Rangers have announced their entire roster for the game tomorrow—Martin Biron will play in goal, and Derek Stepan will center Alex Frolov and Marian Gaborik, at least to start.
Also, according to Andrew Gross’s blog, Dylan McIlrath will play in the rookie game at Newark tomorrow afternoon, then be returned to his junior team. Too bad. I was hoping they’d at least give him a look in a couple of preseason games, even though it was a foregone conclusion that he’d be returned to juniors.
Andrew also has the transcript of John Tortorella’s press conference here.
Here’s the roster for the game vs. the Devils:
D: Dan Girardi, Marc Staal, Alexei Semenov, Michal Rozsival, Mike Sauer, Ryan McDonagh.
F:Brandon Prust, Marian Gaborik, Tim Kennedy, Brandon Dubinsky, Ruslan Fedotenko, Brian Boyle, Erik Christensen, Alex Frolov, Dale Weise, Mats Zuccarello, Derek Stepan, Derek Boogaard.
G: Marty Biron, Chad Johnson
