Rangers recall forward Miller
The New York Rangers have recalled forward J.T. Miller from Hartford of the American Hockey League, the club announced Wednesday.

The New York Rangers have recalled forward J.T. Miller from Hartford of the American Hockey League, the club announced Wednesday.

Miller has bounced back and forth between Hartford and New York all season. This is the sixth time he's joined the Rangers. He has three goals and six points in 28 games for New York and 37 points (12 goals) in 35 games at the AHL level.

Miller was a first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2011 NHL Draft and the 21-year-old Ohio native remains the franchise's top forward prospect. He could be inserted into the lineup Wednesday night against the Philadelphia Flyers in place of forward Chris Kreider, who could be out a month or more with a hand injury, as reported by Bob McKenzie of TSN on Tuesday.

Kreider has 17 goals and 20 assists in 66 games this season, and has been playing on the top line with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash.
Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said Wednesday morning the team does not know how long Kreider will be out, but he will not travel with the team when it leaves for a four-game road trip to Western Canada that starts Friday in Calgary. 

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
