Well, its New York Rangers Game day! They’re heading to Los Angeles to play the Kings, with the puck drop set for 10:30PM EST, another late game due to it being in the west coast. Though some exciting news out of this, and the drama is already set for it, is the return of Captain Ryan Callahan, in which we all know has worked real hard to fight his way back into the lineup after shoulder surgery during the offseason.

To make room for Callahan, the team sent down JT Miller, who yesterday in his first AHL game of the season scored two goals and grabbed an assist, and another Ranger youngster, who you may have heard of, Chris Kreider scored his first goal of the season, as the Wolfpack edged the Albany Devils 4-3 yesterday. Dylan McIlrath scored the game winner, his first career AHL goal.

Danny Kristo would wrap up his first weekend in the AHL with 3 points (1G, 2A). The youth that the Rangers have are impressing early, making it tough for coach Alain Vigneault to decide who to promote, if injuries happen on the big club.
