Katie Strang at ESPN NY says Rangers fans can breath easy as Chris Kreider returned to practice today after suffering a jaw injury from the hit he absorbed from Brooks Orpik in the closing minute of Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Penguins. Strang adds that Kreider suffered a spasm to his TMJ joint after the hit. In other news from practice, Arron Asham did not participate due to a mild groin strain.

Because of the Asham injury, Bickel was bumped up to forward, while Matt Gilroy and Steve Eminger shared 6th defensive spot duties. Sounds like Eminger in tomorrow night. — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) January 22, 2013 Here are other line changes (via Bergen Record)...
