Been a busy day in Rangerland. The Rangers seem to have finally figured out their forward problem, and as expected, the solution came from within. Boo Nieves, who had a strong preseason, has been recalled from the Hartford Wolf Pack. He will replace the recently waived Adam Cracknell, and hopefully actually play.
Nieves has a line of 2-1-3 in 7 games this year with the Pack, and was widely assumed to be the first call up when needed. The Rangers sorely need some stability at center. While Nieves is no savior, he should at least stabilize the fourth line. Let’s hope he’s ready and this works out. The Rangers need some stability in the lineup.
