While the Rangers are returning from Florida for a Wednesday game against Carolina, I’m sitting up in Buffalo (where it’s a balmy 8 degrees right now) at the World Junior Championships for ESPN Insider.
With the big U.S.-Canada showdown set for tonight, I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to blog from up here, but I’ll try to provide some info on the all the local prospects in the tournament when it’s all said and done at the very least.
In the meantime, here’s the view from the Rangers press corps after a rather disappointing 3-0 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Blueshirt Banter adds their breakdown of the loss.
Adam Rotter of SNY Rangers Blog does a great job of rounding up the weekend, so I’ll just point you his way for a few stories on potential Winter Classic locations (including Central Park).
Andrew Gross writes about the shot-blocking culture of the Rangers.
