Rangers camp: Sauer testing himself
GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Rangers defenseman Michael Sauer waited until both sessions of on-ice testing were complete to finally get on the ice to test out his injured knee. Sauer, who worked with assistant coach Mike Sullivan, even got to skate with pucks, which weren't supposed to show up until Sunday's scrimmages.

Sauer, who has tendinitis in his knee, is not doing any of the on-ice testing, but if he feels good enough after he skates Saturday, Rangers coach John Tortorella said he will participate in the camp's first scrimmage Sunday.

"We didn't want him to jump into the type of skate like that today when he hasn't skated a whole bunch," Tortorella said. "We'll get him tested sooner or later, but we'll see if he can get into the practices and scrimmages tomorrow."

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
