“He does the little things well, communicates really well, and is very reliable.”
John Tortorella said that Sauer was one of the Rangers key penalty killers before yesterday’s game. He sat out yesterday with a sore shoulder.
I would expect Sauer to be back on Tuesday but the team can’t afford to risk another injury by bringing him back too soon. They miss him in all situations and the defense becomes dramatically better with him in the lineup. Especially since it would probably mean that Tim Erixon can go down to Hartford.
