Short and sweet.
Same lineup tonight. Jeff Woywitka re-injured his foot this morning and won’t play. Not sure if it’s now worse or if he’ll be out longer.
He talked about Martin Biron very briefly, and about Mike Rupp. Wouldn’t answer questions on “24/7”

… love the coaching by Torts this year although the “Pro Avery Lifers” will disagree, but Torts is doing a hell of a job with this team and the youth is all here now because of John Tortorella. Give the man the props he deserves.
Last week after episode one, I wrote that I wanted to see more of Lundqvist, Girardi, Staal, Sather, and of course Torts in episode two. Fortunately, most of my wish was granted. As promised, here is episode two. Enjoy!
People’s irrational hate for John Tortorella has finally started to die down. Obviously the Rangers performance is driving this, but I would...
Episode 1 lived up to the hype. It featured a whole lot of swearing (as usual), John Tortorella ripping into Marian Gaborik and Ilya Bryzgalov telling us about the universe.
Episode 2 also promises to be good (I won’t spoil anything for you).
Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants reports that Martin Biron was the first goaltender off the ice at the morning skate meaning he will start tonight against the Islanders at MSG....with the Flyers tomorrow, makes sense to give Lundqvist a rest. Even if it's against the rival Islanders.In other line-up news, Jeff Woywitka was hit on his injured foot with an errant puck during practice...
The New York Rangers will continue on with rivalry week this evening when they host the New York Islanders at Madison Square Garden for the first time this season. The previous two matches between these teams, which were played in October and November, both took place at Nassau Coliseum. So far the series is split, with the Islanders taking the first match-up and Brad Richards'...
Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that after the game John Tortorella said Marian Gaborik was fine after taking a slash to the shoulder on his goal last night....great news! Got to admit, I was real worried watching him wince in pain on the bench. The season actually flashed before my eyes.Here's video of the play...

Here’s the post-game audio. The Dubinsky file begins with a question you won’t hear, about tomorrow’s Winter Classic preview.
Michael Del Zotto:
(this one might be a little quiet; he speaks softly and I couldn’t get close)
The Rangers blue line could look a lot different in the summer of 2012. There’s a chance that next season the Rangers will start six defensemen that have seen the ice this in New York season but don’t expect that six to include Steve Eminger, Anton Stralman and Jeff Woywitka.
All three journeyman pros have expiring contracts and are likely to be let go; at most one may be retained...
Rangers 4, Isles 2
Martin Biron made 24 saves to improve his career record against the Isles to 21-4-1 as the New York Rangers defeated the Islanders 4-2 in front of 18,200 at Madison Square Garden. The Isles are 5-2-1 in their l...
Brandon Dubinsky scored his first goal in more than a month, Marian Gaborik moved into a tie for the NHL lead with his 20th, and Martin Biron was solid in net to lead the New York Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
