To fill some of the void left by Powe's absence, the Rangers recalled the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Mashinter from the Whale, where he scored a goal last night helping Connecticut win its fifth straight game. Since being acquired from the San Jose Sharks organization, the 24 year-old Mashinter has played extremely well with the Whale, scoring five goals, totaling 11 points, and accumulating 23 penalty minutes in 14 games this season.

"We just finished three games in three nights this weekend when I got the call about 9:00 last night," explained Mashinter. "I am a little tired today, to say the least, but I am here ready to do whatever they ask me to do."

Tortorella said after practice that he "has been interested to look at Mashinter...he's an interesting one to me", but the coach would not commit to a definite lineup for Tuesday's home game against the Montreal Canadiens.
