NEW YORK -- New York Rangers left wing Tanner Glass will play in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday (1 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports) after missing practice Friday.
Rangers coach Alain Vigneault confirmed Glass will play during his pregame press conference.
The Rangers never gave a specific reason why Glass missed practice Friday other than to say he was having a maintenance day. Vigneault said Friday he expected Glass would be able to play if nothing changed.
