Chris Drury placed on IR not Long Term IR. The other day Cap Geek reported that putting Drury on LTIR would not open up any cap space for the Rangers at the deadline.
As expected the lines will remain the same tonight in Atlanta.

Steve Zipay tweets that Steve Eminger will sit out his fifth straight game, while Henrik Lundqvist will be back between the pipes after sitting out two games.

Jesse Spector also reports that Dan Girardi, riding the stationary bike, was the only defenseman not on the ice during this morning’s practice.
While Gaborik, Prust, Avery and Wolski were the forwards missing.
