Torts: Drury A Better Winger Than Christensen

Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that John Tortorella said this about his decision to move Chris Dury to the wing while keeping Erik Christensen at center...

“I think Dru can play left wing in a better fashion than Erik,” Tortorella added. “I don’t want to take Erik out of center ice. I think Erik is more of a playmaking guy, he sees all of the ice. It puts Dru in a situation where he’s on his off-side, it gives him a better chance as far as shooting pucks and being more of a straight-line player, which I think he’s been effective at.”

...the move seemed to work for one game we'll have to see how it progresses over time.

Gross also reports that there will be no line-up changes tonight.

...coming off of one of the team's best offensive performances of the year there better not be any changes.
