Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that the back-up goaltending shuffle continued today with Matt Zaba being recalled from Hartford and Chad Johnson being reassigned.
The plan is for Johnson to start two of Hartfords three games this weekend.
Gross also reports Vinny Prospal did not practice today (Donald Brashear took his spot during practice on the top line) to give his knee a day of rest but Prospal was working out off ice.
Finally Gross says that longtime Rangers PR director John Halligan has passed away at the age of 68.
...smart move to keep Johnson sharp.
Steve Zipay at Blue Notes adds that the Rangers have no plans to bring up a seventh defenseman.
