Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that it appears Derek Boogaard will be a healthy scratch tonight for the Rangers with Todd White rejoining the lineup and defenseman Mike Sauer will be back in, likely with Steve Eminger as the scratch.
However, the biggest bit of news is that Marian Gaborik spent 20-30 minutes skating on his own for the first time since separating his left shoulder on Oct. 15. Gaborik emphasized there is still no timetable for his return, or even for him to resume skating with the team.
“My stickhandling was pretty good, I tried to shoot a couple of times,” said Gaborik, who skated in a sweatsuit, not with any equipment. “Obviously, it’s not there yet but I like where it’s going.”
...i'm a big fan of tonight's lineup with Boogaard out and Sauer back in. Should be a nice test against the Blackhawks.
...great to hear Gaborik back on the ice.
