Ranger lines and ‘D pairings for tonight

From Arthur Staple at Blue Notes:

Lines and D pairings for tonight’s game, from today’s half-hour skate:

Higgins-Drury-Callahan

Brashear-Boyle-Voros

Avery-Crowder-Parenteau

Grachev-Anisimov-Lisin


Redden-Rozsival

Heikkinen-Potter

Semenov-Sanguinetti

Tortorella was asked after the skate about the quick demotion to the Hartford camp for Michael Sauer. “He was disappointed,” Tortorella said. “We have (Matt) Gilroy here, we have (Michael) Del Zotto, I haven’t seen Sanguinetti yet… We’re going to shuffle the deck at the defensive position until we find the final 6 or 7 guys.”

Tortorella also had praise for Paul Crowder, who could benefit from Brandon Dubinsky’s holdout. “We just want to take at him some more,” Tortorella said.
