Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Chris Kreider (foot bone chip) is expected to resume skating in the next few days.
According to the New York Post, Kreider has been at the team’s practice facility in Westchester working out with trainers, but hasn’t been on the ice since at least last Thursday, when he was a scratch against the Flyers in Philadelphia.
...it's a real shame the foot is holding Kreider back. The Callahan injury would have given him a great opportunity to step up and prove to the coaching staff he belongs in the NHL.

The Rangers are blessed with the King but shouldn’t assume he’s around forever.
The Rangers are in an enviable situation with Henrik Lundqvist manning their net at an age where he can continue playing at a high level for a long time behind what should be a contender for several seasons. The immediate future in net is bright, but those who think the club should sit back and...
After hearing the news that Ryan Callahan will only miss 10 - 14 days with a shoulder subluxation, Rangers Nation exploded into obvious rejoice. However, there was one person who sent out a word of caution...
Quick warning ... though it's probably uncommon, another NYR captain, Barry Beck, had his career wrecked by recurring shoulder subluxations

The Rangers could be looking at some time without one of their best players.
Captain Ryan Callahan suffered what appeared to be a pretty painful left arm injury Tuesday night in the third period of New York’s 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.
Callahan took exception to a little extracurricular activity from Philly’s Max Talbot around the Rangers net, and the two ended up...
The Rangers have not given an update on the status of the injury Callahan suffered tonight.
By the looks of it, is appears to be a shoulder injury.
Talbot on Callahan incident: "We decided to go and we were holding each other up and his shoulder popped out or something. Unfortunate."

Per Bob McKenzie, captain Ryan Callahan is out 10-14 days with a shoulder subluxation, which means that Cally’s shoulder popped out of its socket real fast, then settled back in. This could have been a lot worse, but the Rangers will definitely miss Cally while he is out for those two weeks.
While he’s out, expect Carl Hagelin and Taylor Pyatt to get a lot of time with Derek Stepan.
Much of the fan base was in the tizzy about how the New York Rangers opened the lockout-shortened season and rightfully so. They looked out-of-sync, a step slow and, at times, completely lost. Not the winning brand of hockey we've grown accustom to here. And not the type of hockey that will get you a spot in the playoffs for a chance to win a Stanley Cup that everyone has predicted...
Rick Nash has 1 goal on 26 shots. As well as he has played, and it has been very, very well, that's somewhat of a problem.

Nash has five assists and is a +5.
...you know what's strange, until I saw this tweet I didn't even notice. His game is so complete, he's been helping the Rangers win (see his five assists...

...love seeing Torts staying so positive and confident about his team despite losing Callahan.
...while I'm just as guilty as the next guy for criticizing Torts on a multitude of issues, I can say that this guy cares about the success of the Rangers organization and his players. It's why...

The Rangers opened the season 3-4-0. Sure, it’s not the start everyone had envisioned, especially with both Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider out with injuries, but it’s only marginally worse than last year’s 3-2-2 start through seven games. That start included four games against non-playoff teams. This year the Rangers played the Penguins twice, the Flyers...

The New York Rangers survived a frantic third period to defeat the Philadelphia Flyers tonight by a score of 2-1 at Madison Square Garden.
The way the Blueshirts played tonight is exactly the kind of style that won the team many games last season. They got some timely scoring from defenseman Michael Del Zotto and team captain Ryan Callahan before relying on their penalty killing...

If you watched the game, you know the Flyers lost this game. The Rangers played a strong game, but they certainly didn't win the game, we lost it. The Flyers again were unable to capitalize on their power plays, and they get the loss.
The Flyers went 1 for 6 on the PP tonight, they are now...
The New York Rangers appear to be back on track after a poor start to the season. The opposite has been true for the Pittsburgh Penguins, whose sudden dropoff after a solid opening has them searching for answers.
The Rangers, though, will try to begin making do without captain Ryan Callahan as they look to stop a pair of losing streaks against Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
The New York Rangers (2-3-0) host the Philadelphia Flyers (2-4-0) at MSG starting at 7:00 p.m. For a preview go to Yahoo! Sports.
