Tuesday was a busy day for the Rangers, who were off following Monday night's big comeback victory over Minnesota. It came as no surprise, as there were a couple of loose-ends that needed tying, and still some unresolved questions. Will get to all that momentarily. Now, you're morning notes.
On the other hand, there's John Moore. The Rangers defenseman delivered a high hit to Erik Haula during the Minnesota game, one that forced Haula out (Haula also didn't play Tuesday against the Bruins with what was listed as an upper-body injury), and earned Moore a match penalty. On Tuesday, there were a number of different things reported on Moore, so here's what we know right now: Moore was offered an in-person hearing from the NHL's Department of Player Safety, meaning he can be suspended for over five games, but isn't guaranteed any suspension whatsoever.

Monday's comeback may have left things in an overall positive light, but it's tough to complete ignore the continued struggles of Ryan McDonagh. [Daily News]
Anthony Duclair isn't going anywhere. Why? He's proving to everyone what we all suspected: he's really good. [NY Post]
The Rangers are banged up, and now may be without a regular defenseman in Moore for an extended stretch. So with four games over a two week stretch on the calendar, the team is getting some much needed rest as November approaches. [The Record]
