Asham injury forces Rangers to shuffle lineup

NEW YORK – The New York Rangers will shuffle their lineup Wednesday night against the Boston Bruins as a groin injury will relegate forward Arron Asham to spectator status.

Coach John Tortorella announced that defenseman Stu Bickel will move into Asham’s position up front and Steve Eminger will make his season debut on the blue line.

Asham suffered the injury during the Rangers' 6-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night. Asham fought Tanner Glass two seconds after the opening faceoff and played just 5:53. Tortorella said Asham did not suffer the injury during the fight.
