Scott Gomez will return to the Rangers line-up tonight against Phoenix after missing five games with an ankle injury.
Here's what Tom Renney had to say when asked if Gomez' return has anything to do with the Rangers recent struggles...
“We’re 14-7,” said Renney to Sam Weinman at The Rangers Report, leaving out the two overtime losses. “He’d have to be ready to go. I wouldn’t rush anybody’s return. I wouldn’t jeopardize anybody’s career, nor would I jeopardize a loss by putting a guy in the lineup that shouldn’t be there.”
Weinman adds that the line-ups he reported yesterday at practice will be in effect tonight.
...hopefully Gomez' return will spark this team.
