In anticipation of a physical game tonight against the Flyers, the Rangers have recalled Michael Haley from the CT Whale. Haley has 9g, 12a and 158 minutes in penalties this season. ...i was one of a few Rangers fans who liked the Haley signing this offseason. I vividly remember how he sparked an Islanders run two years ago when he fought Penguins goalie Brent Johnson. He definitely has the ability to be a catalyst for the Rangers. Unfortunately, he could just as easily pull a Kaleta tonight, so he needs to make sure he walks a fine line. In not so good news from the morning skate, Brad Richards was out skating early, but left before it ended leading to speculation he will not be ready for tonight. Arron Asham did not skate and will miss his fourth straight game. ...not sure if the strategy is to just insert Haley if Richards can't go or possibly move Gilroy up to forward and then pull someone out of the line-up (Bickel) for Haley. I'd rather they just insert Haley, because as I said in the previous post, tonight is likely to get nasty so both Haley & Bickel will be needed. Pat Leonard at the Daily News thinks the lines might look like this tonight... Hagelin-Stepan-Nash Gaborik-Boyle-Callahan Pyatt-Halpern-Miller Haley-Powe-Bickel ...expect that fourth line to get 2 minutes tonight.
