Practice Notes: Glass skates, Talbot starts

Per Brett Cyrgalis, winger Tanner Glass –out with the mumps– skated with the team today at practice, rotating with Anthony Duclair on the fourth defense pairing with John Moore. Glass won’t play tomorrow, and it looks like Alain Vigneault won’t be making any lineup changes either. Jim Cerny noted that Cam Talbot will be in goal tomorrow.

Practice notes: Boyle back, Moore/Duclair extras

Per Andrew Gross, Dan Boyle is back and practicing with the team after sitting out with flu like symptoms. Considering Tanner Glass had flu like symptoms before coming down with the mumps, we had legitimate concern for Boyle. Boyle was inserted into the lineup in place of John Moore, who will join Anthony Duclair in the press box, also per…

Lineup notes: Kreider returns; Duclair likely to sit

Per Andrew Gross, Chris Kreider is back in the lineup tonight, and Anthony Duclair will be the healthy scratch tonight, based on the line combos: Rick Nash-Derick Brassard-Mats Zuccarello Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Martin St. Louis Carl Hagelin-Kevin Hayes-Lee Stempniak J.T. Miller-Dominic Moore-Jesper Fast Another night when Duclair sits. Fire away. I have a post coming at noon, that I wrote before…

Glass out with flu like symptoms, Stempniak to dress

Per Rick Carpinello, winger Tanner Glass will be out tonight with flu like symptoms. Lee Stempniak will return to the lineup to take his place. Also, it’s confirmed that Ryan McDonagh will play tonight, and John Moore –not Matt Hunwick– will be the odd man out on the blue line. Cam Talbot will get the start in net tonight.

Lineup notes: Fast/Duclair in; Stempniak day-to-day

Per Steve Zipay, Lee Stempniak is out tonight, and Alain Vigneault doesn’t think it is a long-term issue. That means both Anthony Duclair and Jesper Fast will play tonight, on the third and fourth lines, respectively. Per Zipay, the lines at practice yesterday: Rick Nash-Derick Brassard-Mats Zuccarello Chris Kreider-Derek Stepan-Martin St. Louis Carl Hagelin-Kevin Hayes-Anthony Duclair Tanner Glass-Dominic Moore-Jesper Fast

Lineup changes: Duclair in for Fast

Per Andrew Gross, Anthony Duclair will play tonight against the Tampa Bay Lightning, skating on the third line with Kevin Hayes and Carl Hagelin. Lee Stempniak was shifted to the fourth line with Dominic Moore and Tanner Glass. Jesper Fast will be the healthy scratch. The defensive pairs will be Marc Staal-Dan Boyle, John Moore-Dan Girardi, and Matt Hunwick-Kevin Klein.

Lineup notes: Dan Boyle returns, Anthony Duclair still sitting

Per Sean Hartnett, the only lineup change being made tonight will be Dan Boyle returning to the lineup, replacing Mike Kostka. Likely riding the 5-0 win on Tuesday night, coach Alain Vigneault did not make any changes to his forward lines, which means Anthony Duclair will again be a scratch. Sooner or later, I’m going to get the Duclair-Kevin Hayes-Lee…

Fast in for Duclair; Glass has inappropriate photos of the coaching staff

Per Seth Rothman, recently recalled winger Jesper Fast is taking line rushes with Tanner Glass and Dominic Moore, while Carl Hagelin, Kevin Hayes, and Anthony Duclair are all taking rushes together. If these lines hold true, then it means Lee Stempniak will be the odd man out. In unrelated news, Tanner Glass has inappropriate photos of the coaching staff, and…

He was skating with Tomas Kaberle, who is joining Ranger practices without a contract. Boyle may not play tomorrow, but it looks like he will be set to return next week. Considering the state of the blue…

Reinforcements are on the way

The Rangers are so shorthanded right now that they’re bringing in Tomas Kaberle to skate with the team today, but that won’t last much longer. Derek Stepan’s return is imminent, Dan Boyle’s recovery is also in it’s final stages, and John Moore’s suspension will be over after Sunday’s game. Kevin Klein could follow soon after, though no official prognosis has…
