Rangers Bring in Whale Reinforcements

With the NHL regular season now over, the Rangers have expanded their roster for the postseason, putting in a call for ten Whale mainstays to be playoff “black aces”, as the expression goes, for the big club.

Both Whale goaltenders, Cam Talbot and Jason Missiaen, two defensemen, Stu Bickel and Dylan McIlrath, and six forwards, Ryan Bourque, Micheal Haley, Brandon Mashinter, J.T. Miller, Brandon Segal and Christian Thomas, received summonses from the Rangers.

Those ten join Kris Newbury on the Ranger roster.  Newbury was recalled Thursday and played 8:59 in the Rangers’ regular-season finale, a 4-0 home win over New Jersey, Saturday.

Word out of New York is that Haley and Newbury will practice with the main Ranger group, while the rest of the callup guys will skate separately from the rest of the team, starting this afternoon at the Rangers’ MSG Training Center practice facility in Tarrytown, NY.  Ken Gernander and assistant coaches Jeff Beukeboom and Pat Boller will alternate running practices for the extra crew.

The Rangers, who grabbed the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff bracket by winning eight out of their last ten games, will face the third-seeded Washington Capitals in the first round.  The Caps have the home-ice advantage, and Games One and Two are Thursday night and Saturday afternoon in D.C..
