Read: Why JT Miller will be scratched tonight


8:17PM: Joe Micheletti said on MSG that the Rangers opted for more experienced players tonight because they feel that while Miller was getting scoring chances, they have enough scoring in the lineup and don’t want to lose based on defense where Miller still needs work.

11:23AM: In his second game with the Rangers after being called up on Wednesday morning, JT Miller played 9:57 through two periods but didn’t take a shift in the third period.

Miller played 4:42 in the first and 5:15 in the second period, was a minus one, had two shots on goal and three missed shots.

Alain Vigneault said after the game about Miller, “I thought the second period there were some offensive opportunities he could have executed better and defensive opportunities he could have executed better and I just felt that I wanted to cut my bench a bit.”


of course hes being scratched because he sucks another brilliant sather draft pick. just like hugh freakin jessiman


Absolute BS. Rangers and AV are really screwing with this kid's development.

Pouliot, Richards, and MSL couldn't even tell you where the defensive zone is let alone make a competent play in it.

Playing Dan Carcillo over Miller is a sick joke.
