The New York Rangers will have to finish tonight’s game in New Jersey without the services of J.T. Miller.
Miller was ejected following his late second period fight with Sergei Kalinin.
The Rangers forward received five minutes for fighting and a match penalty because he had tape on his right hand during the fight.
Rule 41.16 calls for a match penalty for any player wearing tape on his hands below the wrist who cuts or injures opponent.
