With Ryan Callahan and Chris Kreider still not practicing due to injury, Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports these lines from today's practice...
Rick Nash-Brad Richards-Marian Gaborik
Carl Hagelin-Derek Stepan-Taylor Pyatt
Mike Rupp-Brian Boyle-Benn Ferriero
Stu Bickel-Jeff Halpern-Arron Asham
Jim Cerny of nyrangers.com adds that John Tortorella acknowledged Matt Gilroy's versatility after practice.
...really no other line-up Torts can go with at this point unless there's a transaction or someone is called up. Not really sure it matters if it's Bickel or Gilroy as the 12th forward because Torts is only going to give them two minutes anyway.
Gross also notes that Kreider skated lightly during practice today and had this quote from the Rangers rookie...
“Obviously it was an injury but everyone’s playing through something. I felt it all along. There were days where it was worse, days where it was better. I would have liked it to be a b...

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 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...
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
— Rangers Report...
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."

Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Matt Gilroy will make his 2013 season debut on the final defensive pair with Anton Stralman tonight vs. the Penguins. This move means that Stu Bickel will be moved up to play on the fourth line and Steve Eminger will again be a healthy scratch.
...welp, had to figure Gilroy would get a shot eventually and with the high scoring Pens...
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.
An MRI performed on Wednesday revealed that New York Rangers forward Ryan Callahan suffered a shoulder subluxation and is expected to be sidelined for 10-14 days, NHL.com reported. Callahan was injured while fighting with Maxime Talbot during Tuesday night's 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers. The players fell to the ice during the fight, and when Callahan arose he held...

...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...

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...

According to Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants, Torts juggled the line combos today at practice with both his even strength and power play units. Gross reported the following line combos:
Should these lines stay in tact, it appears Hagelin is moving up the second line and Pyatt is going back to the...
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.
Just a few days ago I was feeling real good about the Rangers newly acquired depth F’s, Benn Ferriero and Jason Arnott. Then, just as soon as it happened, the Arnott deal fell apart after the veteran failed his physical and a few days after that captain Ryan Callahan appeared to have suffered a serious [...]
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...
