Don't be surprised if Tanner Glass fights with Wayne Simmonds on Sunday.

The Rangers played the Flyers three games ago and Simmonds ended up concussion New York captain Ryan McDonagh in what many Rangers thought was a less than legal hit. Tanner Glass made some comments earlier in the week that the hit would not be tolerated but took a step back Saturday. "I think as a group we didn’t like the hit," Glass said. "It was right in front of our bench. We all saw the play develop and what happened. It’s part of the game, as sad as it is to say, and we’ll see what happens (Sunday.)" Stay tuned as there could be fireworks.

Tanner Glass is not happy with the Islanders Cal Clutterbuck.

Clutterbuck was taking liberties with Rangers stars Mats Zuccarello and Derick Brassard and Glass began chirping at him at the end of the second stanza. "It’s just calling him out," Glass said. "He’s the toughest guy ever when it’s Brassard and Zuccarello — and Ramsay (the Rangers trainer) — and I come around and he’s a mute. So it’s chicken. He wants to fight the little guys. He supposed to be physical player, a gritty player, then he’s just silent when someone that actually might do something comes around? That’s not how the game should be." The Rangers and the Islanders next meet on March 6 and it should be interesting. Glass has a goal and an assist with 27 penalty minutes in 20 NHL games this season.

Look for Tanner Glass to be on the fourth line Sunday if he remains in the Rangers lineup.

Glass had been seeing third line duty in the two games since his recall from the minors earlier in the week. He played alongside Oscar Lindberg and J.T. Miller in his first two games but was practicing with Viktor Stalberg and Jarret Stoll. Glass was in a fight Thursday with Cody McLeod and now has nine penalty minutes with no points in four games.

Tanner Glass went unclaimed on waivers.

Glass was reassigned to the minors as a result. The Rangers will still be hit with a $500,000 annual cap hit as long as he's playing in the AHL, but that's compared to the $1.45 million he would cost them on the active roster. He has no points in two games this season.

The New York Rangers are expected to send Tanner Glass to the minors if he clears waivers.

Glass is in the second season of a three-year, $4.35 million deal and it can't be completely buried in the AHL. However, the Rangers would still get some valuable cap relief from demoting him. He's spent five of New York's seven games in the press box.
