Lots of injury news as Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record says that while Ryane Clowe did not practice today, John Tortorella expects him to be an important player for the Rangers in the playoffs.
...with the Newbury recall, it's highly unlikely he'll be in the Rangers line-up against the Devils tomorrow, however, Torts' comments has me optimistic about his return in time for the playoffs.
Meanwhile, Gross also reports that Derek Dorsett said he is awaiting a CT Scan to be cleared for contact.
Here's a pic of Dorsett at practice today (via Rangers Instagram)...
...with Clowe's status still up in the air the results of that CT scan are going to be very important.
Ryan Callahan also did not practice today and Gross suspects it has something to do with the shot he blocked with his hand last night.
...that hand looked pretty good sniping home the game winner. I wouldn't be concerned.
Finally, Marc Staal says there is no update on his status.
