Rangers Recall Bell & Newbury, Demote Zuccarello

With a rather slow start to the season for the Rangers and several injuries hampering the blue line it was not unexpected that the Rangers would make a few moves last night after a 5-3 loss to the Islanders.

The first move announced was that Zuccarello had been sent down to Connecticut and Kris Newbury recalled. It was expected that Newbury would be the first re-call as I tweeted Friday night, after all he did start the season in the AHL with 4 goals and 8 points in the first 8 games. However, I am surprised that once again Eric Christensen has managed to avoid the drop.

A poster on HFBoards may have just hit the nail on the head as to why Christensen is still with the team:
And yet Christensen stays? Does he have naked photos of Torts or something?
With the injuries on defense to Marc Staal and Mike Sauer, with no known return table for either the Rangers decided to play it safe and bring Brendan Bell, an eighth defenseman with them for the four game road trip out West.
