Mashinter, 25, had three shots on goal and 10 penalty minutes in six games with the Rangers this season. In 11 games with the Rangers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, he had seven points and a plus-3 rating.

The Blackhawks assigned Mashinter to their AHL team, the Rockford IceHogs.

Beach, 23, was taken by the Blackhawks with the 11th pick of the 2008 NHL Draft, but never made it to the NHL. He has four goals in seven games with Rockford, his sixth AHL season. The Rangers assigned Beach to their AHL team.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
