Rangers recall Zac Jones; Morgan Barron in tonight

NY Rangers film room: Why can't Zac Jones hold a roster spot?

The Rangers have recalled defenseman Zac Jones, two days after sending him down to Hartford.

We were wondering why the Rangers sent him down in the first place, and now following the recall we are left a little baffled. There are only two reasons left: The first is someone is hurt (or in Patrik Nemeth’s case, just rotating in and out), and the second is to bank even more cap space. You know, more than the $20 million they have right now.

This one is still baffling to me, and there’s still no confirmation he will play. But hey, he’s back. And apparently so is Morgan Barron.

Barron getting in, even for the sick Filip Chytil, is a welcomed sign. Glad to see him getting a chance after a long time sitting in the press box.
