  • Rangers' Glass Registers Assist In Game 6

    News: Tanner Glass recorded an assist in Tuesday's Game 6 win over the Lightning.

  • Rangers, Glass Familiar With Caps

    News: Tanner Glass has continued practicing with the team's fourth unit on Tuesday, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
    Analysis: No surprise since the team will likely be light one regular forward (Mats Zuccarello) for at least one game. While Tanner Glass hasn't been the value signing the Rangers hoped for this past summer, he should bring a grit the team will need as they face the Capitals for the fifth postseason in seven years. Glass, who has yet to find the scorer's sheet through five playoff games this spring and has just one point through 42 career games, does bring with him familiarity against the Caps as well. Most recently with the Penguins, the 31-year-old left-winger has only played in more career against the Hurricanes (24) and boasts 56 hits through 22 career games against Washington.

  • Rangers' Glass Finally Scores

    News: Tanner Glass scored his first goal of the season in Thursday's 5-1 victory over Ottawa.
    Analysis: In fact, the tally was Tanner Glass' first goal since way back on Jan. 30, 2014, ending an 84-game slump without finding the back of the net. Of course, since the veteran wing's career high is five goals, it's not like he's used to lighting up the scoresheet anyway. Glass' fantasy value is almost entirely contained to his physical play.

    Analysis: Considering Tanner Glass has not found the scorer's sheet in three months, we're going to call this a moral victory for the fourth line forward.
