SPOTLIGHT: ROSTER MOVEMENT

Bruce Berlet 7BY: Bruce Berlet

If you want to know how New York Rangers coach John Tortorella feels about his new call-ups from the Connecticut Whale, consider who was on the ice for the final minute of a 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

With the Flyers having pulled goalie Sergei Bobrovsky for a sixth attacker and the Rangers trying to protect the lead and complete a shutout for No.1 star Henrik Lundqvist, Tortorella sent out veteran John Mitchell and rookie Carl Hagelin with new linemate Brian Boyle. The trio helped kill off precious seconds, and Lundqvist made two of his 29 saves for his second shutout of the season and 40th of his NHL career, as a Madison Square Garden sellout crowd roared its approval in a preview of the 2012 NHL Winter Classic on Jan. 2.

FROM THE CREASE with BRUCE BERLET

BY: Bruce Berlet

Lights. Camera. Action.

Yes, more than the usual number of faces was on hand for the opening of the New York Rangers’ training camp Friday at the Madison Square Garden training facility in Greenburgh, N.Y.

HBO has begun filming the Rangers for the second season of “24/7: Road to the Winter Classic,” which will keep Blueshirts fans across the country glued to their television sets this winter. The Rangers will play the Philadelphia Flyers in the fifth Winter Classic on Jan. 2 at 1 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park, though official announcement of the game might not be made until the end of the month. It originally was to be played at Lincoln Financial Field on New Year’s Day, which is when the Winter Classic has always been played. But the Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled to play at Lincoln Financial Field on Jan. 1, so the game was moved back a day.

FROM THE CREASE with BRUCE BERLET

bruce mug shot 1BY: Bruce Berlet

Dale Purinton and Richard Scott early on and Justin Soryal and Devin DiDiomete lately have been energetic instigators/enforcers who earned the respect of teammates and love from fans in the 14-year history of the Hartford Wolf Pack/Connecticut Whale.

Jason Wilson might soon join those ranks.

“Wilson is a baby gorilla,” The Prospect Park’s Jess Rubenstein, a highly regarded follower and analyst of junior and college player, said of the 6-foot-3, 208-pound left wing. “Niagara played him with Ryan Strome, the fifth pick by the New York Islanders (on June 24), using him as a power forward/enforcer. He’s a real likeable person who wants to improve his game. He should do well with the Whale.”

Wilson chuckled when told of Rubenstein’s “baby gorilla” description but didn’t mince words about his style.

NY INJURY UPDATES

New York RangersDAN GIRARDI AND BRANDON PRUST INJURY UPDATE

New York, April 29, 2011 – New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that Dan Girardi underwent successful surgery yesterday to repair his inguinal hernia.  In addition, Brandon Prust underwent successful surgery today to repair a labral tear.  Both are expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Girardi led all Rangers defensemen and ranked second and seventh on the team, respectively, with career-highs in assists (27) and points (31) this season.  He also led the league with a career-high, 236 blocked shots, and ranked second on the Rangers and 15th in the NHL with a career-high in average ice time (24:34).  The fourth-year player skated in his 300th career NHL game on November 19 at Colorado.

Prust captured the 2010-11 Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award, voted by the fans as the player who performs “above and beyond the call of duty.”  He established career-highs in goals (13), assists (16), points (29), and shots on goal, and was one of four Rangers to have skated in all 82 games this season.  Prust tied for second in the NHL with a career-high, seven shorthanded points, third with five shorthanded goals and 12th with two shorthanded assists.
