Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Arron Asham traveled with the team to Buffalo, however he did not work out with his teammates on the ice and will not play tonight. ...Haley's emergence has made Asham's absence obsolete. While Asham is clearly more talented, I think Torts likes the sandpaper Haley brings to the line-up. Will be real interesting to see what Torts does when Asham is healthy. Meanwhile, after the morning skate, John Tortorella indicated that Roman Hamrlik will not be sent down to the CT Whale for conditioning, but will instead work with Jim Schoenfeld to get in shape. He will not be in the line-up tonight. ...with Staal expected back in 2-3 weeks and Eminger stepping up his game lately, you have wonder if the Hamrlik claim was even worth it. He's essentially become a $3.5 million waste of a roster spot. Plus his acquisition basically kept the Rangers from re-signing Zuccarello. Gross adds that the line-up tonight will be the same as Sunday's, except Henrik Lundqvist gets the start in goal. In Sabres line-up news, they will be without Ryan Miller (sinus infection) and Tyler Ennis tonight. Ennis has 7g, 11a on the season. ...big break for the Rangers tonight as Enroth, who is 0-10-3 in his last 14 games dating back to last season, gets the start. Sabres head coach Ron Rolston addressed the possibility that the Rangers will be looking for retribution for the Patrick Kaleta hit tonight (via Daily News)... “Obviously a possibility. The other thing I would say I think they’re normally edgy, so that’s the way they want to play." Neither Tortorella nor Brad Richards were very willing to talk about the hit this morning, but Haley did address it with Gross... "If (Kaleta) was in it'd be different but he's not so it's a non-issue. It doesn't change anything for me." Former Ranger tough guy John Scott will be in the line-up for the Sabres. ...Haley better be ready for Scott's long reach tonight.
