Bleeding All Blue:
The Rangers announced they recalled defenseman Tim
Erixon from the CT Whale of the AHL. Erixon has played well in 13 games for the Whale, recording one goal and 11 assists, though he did miss some games with injury a few weeks ago.
The recall does not mean Erixon is guaranteed to play, but could be precautionary since the Rangers have no extra defenders as they head out to St. Louis and Phoenix this week. I believe Erixon will play because someone like Brendan Bell would have been the call if they just needed a placeholder on the roster. Jeff Woywitka or Anton Stralman would be the most likely to be pulled from the lineup. Stralman has outplayed Woywitka of late and a Woywitka turnover was directly related to the Dallas game-winner last night, so look for him to be the man in the press box.

There have not been many big-name free-agent signings that worked out well for the Rangers in the past 10 years or so. But the biggest and brightest signings that have brought the Rangers organization back to its feet and rejuvenated an entire fan base were the signings of Jaromir Jagr (who has...

BLUES VS. NEW YORK RANGERS
The New York Rangers were stymied by the St. Louis
Blues defense for almost the entire 60 minutes giving them little ability to
generate anything offensively in a 4-1 defeat Thursday night. The Rangers went long stretches unable to
even generate a shot on goal and that just will not get it done against quality

It was hardly surprising that the New York Rangers called up rookie defenseman Tim Erixon from the Connecticut Whale on Wednesday.
Erixon’s role with the AHL’s Northeast Division leaders has expanded, and his play has steadily improved since he was assigned to the Whale on Oct. 29. The 20-year-old had been on the Whale’s No. 1 power-play unit and become among...
… not good. Hopefully it won’t be a long trip to the IR for Sauer. Now it makes sense why Erixon was brought up, if Sauer is going to miss more time than the Rangers previously thought.
Set to begin the eastern part of their five-game road trip, the Dallas Stars will visit a familiar face tonight as they visit Brad Richards and the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.
