NHL Snap Shots: Around the Atlantic Division

Brett Cyrgalis reports on nypost.com  that the New York Rangers' young center J.T. Miller made an impression in his first NHL game.  Miller was out on the ice quite a bit for coach John Tortorella.  Miller was the 15th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, who most recently played for the Rangers' AHL affiliate Connecticut Whale.

Arthur Staple of newsday.com writes that Lubomir Visnovsky should be playing with the New York Islanders at some point this week.

Frank Seravalli reports for philly.com that Wayne Simmonds of the Philadelphia Flyers was back at practice on Wednesday, his first since a concussion last week, but that he was wearing a "non-contact" jersey.

The Pittsburgh Penguins' Brooks Orpik is on an uptick in blocked shots according to an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette by Dave Molinari.   Orpik may not be intentionally trying to increase his statistics in this category, but his shot-blocking efforts on the ice are helping the Penguins nonetheless.

As reported earlier, the New Jersey Devils have acquired center Andrei Loktionov from the Los Angeles Kings, in return for a draft pick.
