It's Tort's call: Mr. Higgins On Line One

Mid-day update. I was hoping it would be Seanny - but Tortorella said today that Chris Higgins will jump on the carousel and take his turn on the top line with Gabs and Prospal. Maybe this will finally get Higgs going.

This means that Kotalik's tryout at the top slot is officially ended after one game. Colliding with Gaborik at the blue line on Prospal's goal certainly didn't help his chances. We have enough to worry about with opponents ramming into Gabs - we don't need other Rangers hitting him.

The K-Cannon drops to line 2 and joins Callahan - who will try to center - and Lisin - who will try to skate on one good foot.

If my math skills are still intact - that leaves Avery and Parenteau and Anisimov to be that 3rd line. Avery is working his butt off to get the puck to guys who don't know exactly what to do with it.

Chris Drury again skated with the team and may be close to returning. It would be great to get anything resembling Good News at this point.

The Puck (and my general sense of well-being) will drop at 7pm. See you later.
