Quote: Why Steve Eminger Was Scratched Last Night

…I was a little surprised by this last night but I think it was just a one game thing. Eminger has exceeded expectations by miles this season and shouldn’t lose his spot in the lineup. It’s the same situation with Del Zotto that it has been for a while, he isn’t better than any of the six ahead of him but still possesses the most offensive talent of any of the Rangers defenseman. We will see what the Rangers do on Thursday but I think Del Zotto will be scratched and then sent down to play in Hartford as the Whale schedule resumes.

On another note, Ryan McDonagh has been great in his time since being called up.
