The Rangers begin their long stretch of travel for games tonight in Dallas. For the players, they will get to see old friend Mats Zuccarello. For us fans, he broke his arm and is not playing tonight. The hockey gods are cruel sometimes.
The Blueshirts are dressing their youngest roster in years, and the future is looking bright. David Quinn has them competing in every game, and there aren’t many where the Rangers give up and accept defeat.
Interesting note: Alex Radulov won’t play tonight, as he was late to the Stars’ morning skate. They will play 11F/7D, like the Rangers.
