#NYR on ice at practice. Clowe is skating again. Nash and Powe not on the ice. Maintenance day for Nash.
— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) May 7, 2013
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record adds that Clowe did some contact drills today.
...i'm still in shock Clowe didn't play last night, but happy to see the Rangers being cautious with him.
Per Katie Strang, the Rangers have activated Marc Staal off injured reserve. This is not a guarantee that he will play tonight, but it is very likely he will be back. Staal will likely replace Steve Eminger in the lineup.
from Howie Kussoy of the New York Post,
Staal played 17:17, alongside Anton Stralman, and said he felt good physically and with his conditioning, while acknowledging his timing needs improvement, particularly in making his return to the faster pace of the playoffs.
Staal said his return was delayed by issues that arose with his eye last week, which have since cleared, but...

What, you thought this was going to be easy? The 2011-2012 Rangers came within two points of winning the President’s Trophy and still needed two seven-game series to get to the Eastern Conference Finals, so why would the 2013 version, which had to scratch and...
The New York Rangers have activated defenseman Marc Staal from the injured reserve list and should be ready to suit up Monday night. Staal was nailed by a puck close to his eye in early March and has been suffering from blurry vision ever since.
The post New York Rangers Activate Marc Staal From Injured Reserve appeared first on FFLockerRoom | NFL - MLB News | Fantasy Sports Advice...
Marc Staal's 17:17 of ice time in his return to the Rangers line-up was for the most part uneventful. But the effect on his teammates was more than noticeable.
Here's Derek Stepan on the defensman's impact (via New York Post)...
"It’s huge. He makes the D-core calm,” said Derek Stepan. “He’s got a presence about him that he can just control a game...
It certainly would be a boost for the Rangers if Staal does play tonight.
I don't "know" anything for certain, but if Marc Staal plays for NYR tonight I "think" I will be not surprised.

Marc Staal's return to the New York Rangers' lineup following a
serious eye injury lasted only one game as he is sitting out Game 4
of the first-round playoff series with the Washington Capitals on
Three nights after Sidney Crosby made his return to the Penguins’ lineup, Marc Staal did the same for the Rangers.
Staal, who hadn’t played in over two months since taking a puck to the face back on March 5, didn’t have quite the personally successful return that Crosby did (he was a minus-one with no points in 17:17 of ice time while the Pittsburgh captain scored twice in...
I have hit a stretch busy and busy between weekday stuff and then a couple of booked weekends. But along the way, I have been doing a rambling version of writing that includes player and team assessments leading into how I would try to remold the team for next year. So I don't do the thing where I put up 2-3 of these on a reasonable schedule and then get sidetracked for 2 weeks...
The Rangers won Game Three, which was a must-win. Funny thing is that Game Four is also a must-win. The Rangers can ill-afford to head to Washington down 3-1, so tonight is another game where the Rangers need to get their W. The good news is that Ryane Clowe is back, in place of the injured Darroll Powe. This means that for the first time, the Rangers have all of their...
Per Dan Rosen, Ryane Clowe left the optional skate early this morning, while Arron Asham stayed on the ice a bit longer. This generally suggests that Asham will be a scratch, and Clowe will make his return to the lineup. Rosen also noted that Marc Staal is physically ready (reading between the lines of his tweet), but it’s more of a mental thing with Staal. He has to be able...
I will keep this blog somewhat brief, covering the thrilling 4-3 win in Game 3 with a look forward to Game 4 tonight at MSG.
Several items I noticed watching it and themes from Game 3, which will either need to be repeated or amended tonight:
Derick Brassard: Excellent performance in his first playoff game at MSG. Double-shifted when Darroll Powe went...

As this series comes to New York with the Rangers trailing 2-0, the only thing that matters right now is a victory. The Rangers might be getting Ryane Clowe back in the lineup tonight as Arron Asham appears to be scratched, and there’s a slight chance Marc Staal might come back as well, likely for Steve Eminger. Both are critical pieces in helping the...
Prior to Game 2, most of the discussion centered around who might be ready to play in order to add some depth and physical play to the roster. Well, we got half our wish as Derek Dorsett made his Rangers' debut and Brian Boyle returned from a knee injury, while Ryane Clowe and Marc Staal were deemed not ready. The lineup with the returning players to start the game was: Hagelin...
