Miller will sit for Glass. Shocker.

Lineup notes: Miller appears to be healthy scratch

Per Steve Zipay, the Rangers are shuffling their lineup after last night’s loss to the Isles, and J.T. Miller will be a healthy scratch along with Matt Hunwick. Lee Stempniak and John Moore will be back in the lineup. Tanner Glass will still be playing because he “played physically last 3 games, element that team needs.” The lines: Rick Nash…

Lineup notes: Stepan unlikely, Miller to center, Glass dressing

Per Brett Cyrgalis, Derek Stepan was not on the ice for practice and is not expected to play tomorrow in Boston. Tanner Glass, a healthy scratch for the last six games, was skating on the fourth line, which was one of three new lines: Rick Nash-Derrick Brassard-Mats Zuccarello Chris Kreider-J.T. Miller-Martin St. Louis Carl Hagelin-Dominic Moore-Lee Stempniak Tanner Glass-Kevin Hayes-Jesper…

Lineup notes against Anaheim: Moore in for Hunwick

Per the Rangers Twitter, defenseman John Moore will return to the lineup in place of Matt Hunwick. Moore, who has yet to score a goal and has just three assists this season, has been a healthy scratch for the Rangers last two games. Henrik Lundqvist will get the start in net tonight.

Lineup notes: Miller in, Fast out against Stars

Per Steve Zipay, Jesper Fast will be the healthy scratch tonight for the Rangers as they take on Dallas. J.T. Miller will be re-inserted back into the lineup. For some reason, Tanner Glass is still playing. It’s not like Dallas is incredibly skilled, fast, and high scoring or anything like that. The defense will remain the same, and Henrik Lundqvist…

Lineup notes: Derick Brassard returns to the lineup

Derick Brassard will return to the lineup tonight after missing a few games with the mumps. Brassard was the second Ranger (Tanner Glass) to contract the mumps, but is not the last. Lee Stempniak is no longer with the team for the moment as he is being isolated with the mumps. The lines will change a bit, but the same…

Lineup notes: Hunwick in, Moore out

Per the Rangers Twitter, Matt Hunwick will replace John Moore on the third defense pairing tonight in Calgary. It’s a relatively minor lineup change, probably designed to ensure Hunwick’s legs stay fresh.

Lineup notes: Kreider to fourth line, Glass a healthy scratch?

Per the Rangers Twitter, Tanner Glass was skating with Matt Hunwick as the extra skaters at practice. Chris Kreider has been moved to the fourth line with Dominic Moore and Jesper Fast. That likely means J.T. Miller has moved up in the lineup to play top-nine minutes, presumably with Kevin Hayes and Lee Stempniak. Derek Stepan and Martin St. Louis,…

AV: Kreider doubtful for tonight

Per Sean Hartnett, winger Chris Kreider is doubtful for tonight with neck spasms after colliding with Carl Hagelin at practice yesterday. With Kreider likely out, J.T. Miller will stay in the lineup for at least one more game. Meanwhile, AV also confirmed that Tanner Glass and John Moore will return to the lineup tonight. Glass is replacing the injured Kreider,…

Back to benching kids for vets?

Update: Tanner Glass is out for the optional skate, which means he will likely be a healthy scratch, per Steve Zipay. The original title for this post is relatively useless, so I’m going to change it now. Original Post: In case you missed it yesterday, Tanner Glass returned to practice and skated on the fourth line with Dominic Moore and Jesper Fast….
