Gilroy dazzles at The Rock

Matt Gilroy followed up his solid performance on Tuesday night with an even better one Wednesday night against the Devils at the Prudential Center, registering the Rangers’ first goal and later scoring in the shootout. The Rangers lost, 3-2 SO, despite Gilroy’s efforts.

Joining a Ranger rush early in the third period, he took a pass, sped past a defenseman and beat former Brown goalie Yann Danis with a quick backhander. He beat Danis again in the shootout for a 1-0 New York lead, but Zach Parise answered immediately and Travis Zajac won it for New Jersey a few rounds later.

As he did Tuesday, Gilroy frequently was involved with the offense in transition, while producing a more thorough effort in the defensive zone.

Colin Wilson, BU’s other Hobey Baker Award finalist last season and USA Hockey's College Player of the Year, continues to impress at Predators camp and is at the top of the list rookies to watch compiled by’s Darren Eliot. The buzz at Nashville's training camp is about Wilson's readiness to be the team's third-line center. The Tennessean looks for answers from the Predators' GM and coach.

Brian Strait was assigned to the Penguins’ AHL affiliate in Wilkes Barre/Scranton where former Terrier and NTDP coach John Hynes is now an assistant.

Brandon Yip survived the initial roster cuts in Colorado, but Shawn Bates was released.
