Brett Cyrgalis at the New York Post reports that J.T. Miller will make is NHL debut in New Jersey tonight. Here's Miller anticipating tonight's game... “You dream about this since you’re a little kid. I’m lucky I got an opportunity and I’m going to try and make the best of it; not over-think it and just play my game. Obviously, I’m really excited for it and it’s going to be fun.” Cyrgalis has this quote from John Tortorella on Miller... “As coaches, you need to understand there will be some mistakes made. And as we keep going through the process here – and it’s a little bit different in this type of year because you don’t have all the games – as we go through, we’ll make decisions as far as, do we think it’s best to coach him here and coach his mistakes here, or does he need to go back down and continue playing.” Another player making their Rangers debut tonight will be Darroll Powe, who the Rangers acquired in a trade for Michael Rupp yesterday.
