First some quick stuff:
Brad Richards missed a third day in a row with the flu.
The Rangers will not work out on the ice tomorrow, instead doing classroom/video meetings, so MSG Network’s training camp special has been pushed back to Thursday.
Listen to Torts when he is asked if he has to cut back on the ice time for Dan Girardi and Ryan McDonagh. “No, I’m going to play the hell out of them,” he said. He also spoke about how the Rangers will replace Brandon Prust.
The plan is for us to have our second Live Chat tomorrow at noon. Be there. And stick with me on twitter @RangersReport. Also, check out Henrik Lundqvist’s cool new site, HLundqvist30.com.
