The youth movement continues, as Todd White was sent to Connecticut (formerly Hartford, or Reddenville) today. I don’t blame Todd White at all. He didn’t fit here, and he had no chance to succeed here, and he certainly didn’t hurt the Rangers, though he also didn’t help. And that trade (which got Donald Brashear off the Rangers’ salary cap books) remains a very good one for the Rangers.
So it appears Mats Zuccarello is going to stay for a while, and John Tortorella told reporters tonight that Dale Weise might get another recall.
Zuccarello will play with Derek Stepan and Marian Gaborik again tonight, as the lineup remains the same, meaning Michael Del Zotto is the only prucha. Henrik Lundqvist starts in goal, as always, against the Devils.
The Rangers come into the first of a stertch of five on six on the road with 12 road wins, tied with Pittsburgh for the league lead.
