Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that both Brian Boyle (right leg) and Derek Stepan (maintenance day) did not practice today. Gross adds that Stepan indicated that he was confused after being hit by Claude Giroux right before he scored the Rangers final goal in the third period last night and that he's fine now. Stepan did add that he he's a little banged up today. There was no word on Boyle's condition. ...you know Stepan's in the zone when he can score despite being confused after a hit. In all seriousness, hearing that recount from Stepan has me a bit concerned about the possible "C" word. Meanwhile, despite continued blurry vision, Marc Staal returned to practice for the first time since suffering an eye injury last month. Staal did not give Gross a timetable and said he still needs to feel safe with puck rimming around boards, or with the puck dumped into the zone. ...got to assume Staal's appearance at practice had a lot to do with the loss last night. Hope they continue to take they're time with him, especially after hearing that he's still having vision issues in dangerous positions. Derek Dorsett did not practice and has still not been cleared for contact. Finally, it looks like John Tortorella might be taking my power play advise... Torts also said he's trying to work Brassard more into the PP. Says he wants to get John Moore more man-advantage time as well. — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) April 17, 2013 Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
