UPDATE: Glass to play against Columbus 10-11-14
After missing practice on Friday for a maintenance day with a tight back, Tanner Glass will play tonight in Columbus.
Glass’ toughness and penalty killing ability will certainly help against an aggressive Blue Jackets team in a game that is likely to be an intense game as the former Jackets’ captain, Rick Nash, goes back to his former arena for the second time.
Vigneault said that if Glass is available to play, the lineups would likely to be the same. So expect this lineup for tonight’s game.
Tonight’s game marks Matt Hunwick’s Ranger debut as he replaces the injured Dan Boyle in the lineup.
Kevin Klein will now be paired with Staal and Hunwick will play with John Moore.
The Rangers were 2-1-1 against Columbus, with both wins coming on the road. Tonight marks the first of four meetings between the two teams.
Last season’s matchup against Columbus on March 21st, 2014 was one that saw an all out brawl as well as Nash drop the gloves against Matt Calvert in a 3-1 Rangers victory.
