Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record says JT Miller was recalled back to the Rangers after being assigned to the Whale this morning. Gross adds that Miller will NOT be in the line-up tonight vs. the Penguins.
Meanwhile, Katie Strang at ESPN reports that Derick Brassard is en route to New York and could be here before game time.
