Through hard work, patience, and perseverance defenseman Steve Eminger has earned a regula spot among the Rangers defense corps this season---the last two weeks paired with 22 year-old newcomer John Moore. Eminger is steadily climbing the team's list among leaders in both hits and blocked shots, while posting a +2 plus/minus rating in 28 games played.

Monday after practice, Jim Cerny from BlueshirtsUnited.com caught up with Eminger to discuss Saturday's thrilling win on Long Island, what went through his mind when Dan Girardi scored the overtime winner, what the newcomers---including Moore---have brought to the team, and what he expects from Tuesday's game against the Flyers, among other topics.
