Zuccarello will take a seat versus Flyers

12 Comments

With no points in seven games, Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello will be a healthy scratch tonight versus the Flyers.

New York head coach Alain Vigneault apparently made the call based on the 26-year-old’s lack of production, with tough winger Brandon Mashinter, recently promoted from the AHL, getting the nod in Zuccarello’s place.

The Rangers (2-5-0) are coming off a 4-0 defeat to New Jersey on Saturday. That loss was their third of the season by four or more. All told, they’ve been outscored by 18 goals. Which isn’t very good.
