Update from the Rangers Morning Skate

From Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants:

No real update on Sean Avery yet. He left the ice and went to have his right knee examined and tested by the Rangers assistant team doctor, Dr. Anthony Maddalo. Avery was to have played tonight. Instead, Aaron Voros will take his place on Artem Anisimov’s left wing along with Ryan Callahan.

And now that Marian Gaborik is in tonight’s lineup against the Red Wings - his first preseason game after experiencing tightness in his groin prior to training camp - Gaborik said he wants to stay in the lineup for the rest of the preseason schedule (Thursday vs. Capitals and Sunday at Washington).

Gaborik will skate on Vinny Prospal’s right wing with Christopher Higgins.

The other lines and defense pairs:
Ales Kotalik-Chris Drury-Enver Lisin
Evgeny Grachev-Brian Boyle-P.A. Parenteau
Alexei Semenov-Matt Gilroy
Michael Del Zotto-Dan Girardi
Bobby Sanguinetti-Wade Redden
G: Henrik Lundqvist (will play the first half), Steve Valiquette
