KRIS NEWBURY RUMORS & GOSSIP
After last night’s win that clinched a playoff berth, the Rangers called up forward Kris Newbury. This is likely due to the Ryane Clowe injury, as the power forward was injured in the game and did not return. The Rangers had no spare forwards (to the point where Matt Gilroy had to dress for a late-scratch of Arron Asham). Newbury will be with the club as long as both Clowe and...
There is still no word on Ryane Clowe's condition after he was forced to leave last night's game with either a leg injury or an elbow to the head by Bobby Sanguinetti. Larry Brooks at the New York Post speculates that it's a right leg injury.

Kris Newbury was returned to Connecticut after last night’s 2-1 loss to the Flyers. In his one game cameo, Newbury played seven shifts for just five minutes of ice time. He also fought Tye McGinn and was charged an extra two minutes for roughing. This likely means that Chris Kreider will dress against the Leafs on Saturday.
