12:09PM: Miller is out tonight and Alain Vigneault says that it’s because of the numbers game. (Steve Zipay)
8:22AM: JT Miller is the most likely forward to come out of the lineup when Ryan Callahan is ready to return to the Rangers lineup, which could happen as early as tonight. (NY Post)
Callahan would likely join Brad Richards and Mats Zuccarello on the second line with Derick Brassard replacing Miller as center on the third line between Carl Hagelin and Benoit Pouliot. (NY Post)
Miller has been playing his most consistent hockey lately but doesn’t have a spot if he isn’t in the top-nine, since the fourth line of Brian Boyle, Dominic Moore and Derek Dorsett will likely stay intact. (NY Post)
Adam Rotter: It becomes a numbers game and Miller still has the option to go to the minors without going through waivers so he will likely be the one to come out. People will want Brian Boyle out of the lineup for Miller but Boyle, for all his ineffectiveness in the offensive zone, is a valuable penalty killer for the Rangers. If it is Miller that is scratched they should send him down and call someone else up, Darroll Powe maybe, to be the extra forward after this weekend’s games. Miller needs to play and continue on the path he has forged in his last few games.
