Just one night after knocking off the Bolts in Tampa, Henrik Lundqvist and the New York Rangers shift to Sunrise for the Florida Panthers.

  • New York Rangers (42-22-2, 86 pts)
  • Florida Panthers (29-24-11, 69 pts)
  • NHL, Mar. 7, 7:30 p.m. ET, MSG Network
  • BB&T Center, Sunrise, Florida

Aggression. It’s a simple word that oftentimes brings real meaning, especially in the game of hockey. For the New York Rangers, there came a certain point in which this word was nonexistent.

Then Jeff Gorton decided to call-up Tanner Glass.

In his first game in the NHL this season, Glass was more than willing to dance the night away against the Bolts in Tampa in the Rangers thrilling 1-0 overtime win a night ago. This attitude led to a more relentless Rangers team while playing without a few unhealthy pieces.

On Tuesday night, New York will cap off its back-to-back Florida series in Sunrise against the Florida Panthers.

Alain Vigneault, the offensive coach who’s always been a Glass guy, understands what the fourth-line guy can add to the lineup, via AP.

“Tanner’s been playing hard,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault told The New York Post. “He’s been playing well. (With Kampfer), it gives us two more players to make some decisions.”

Expect the Blueshirts to go with starter Henrik Lundqvist tonight, a day after he received the night off in favor of Antti Raanta, whose 38-save performance could easily be called the Rangers best goaltender performance of the year.

Opening puck drop comes your way at 7:30 p.m. ET.
