from Jeff Z. Klein of Slap Shot,
There was bad news and good news for the Rangers’ injury-riddled defensive corps Monday.
The bad news: Steve Eminger will be out 8 to 10 weeks while recuperating from a separated right shoulder sustained in Saturday’s 3-2 victory in Phoenix. More bad news: Jeff Woywitka was unable to practice Monday after being struck in the ankle with a shot later in that game and may not be ready to face the Devils on Tuesday in Newark.
The good news: Marc Staal, who has missed the entire season with concussion symptoms, practiced and said he expected to be cleared for contact “in a few days.”
