Stephane Quintal and the Department of Player safety came down pretty hard on John Moore who is a repeat offender. The previous incident came as recent as this past post season, where Moore was suspended for a headshot on Montreal’s Dale Weise.
Michael Kostka is expected to take his place in the lineup.
Alain Vigneault on #NYR d-man situation: “I’m comfortable w/ the 7 guys we have here.” Says Rangers will “go with 6” if Moore is suspended.
