Talbot, Miller remain day-to-day for Rangers

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Goaltender Cam Talbot and forward J.T. Miller did not skate for the New York Rangers on Monday and are considered day-to-day, according to coach Alain Vigneault.

Miller skated on his own before the Rangers practiced Monday and is expected to participate in practice Tuesday. He has been out with an upper-body injury since falling shoulder-first into the goal post during the second period in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Montreal Canadiens. He has two assists in four playoff games after totaling three goals and six points in 30 regular-season games.

Talbot, out with an unspecified injury, did not skate at all and was replaced in practice by third-string goaltender David Leneveu. In two playoff games in relief of starter Henrik Lundqvist, he has allowed two goals on 13 shots. During the regular season, Talbot went 12-6-1 with a 1.64 goals-against average and .941 save percentage.

Vigneault said more would be known Tuesday regarding Talbot's status for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final at Staples Center in Los Angeles (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
