- The shoulder injury suffered in the 2nd period by star Marian Gaborik is being called a separation in which he is supposed to miss 2-3 or 2-4 weeks based on different reports. I am sure more tests will be done in the coming days to see the severity, but if it is a separation I think 2 weeks is very optimistic.
- Chris Drury returned from his preseason broken finger to go ahead and break the same finger again and this time instead of a month they are projecting a six week absence for the Captain.
- If those two were not enough Prospal finally admitted he would need the surgery I have been expecting him to have for the past few weeks. The surgery is scheduled for Tuesday and they are saying he is out indefinitely but my feeling is he is done for the year and anything the Rangers get from him this year is gravy.
- On the Erik Christensen front Tortorella says that he should be back on Sunday, but Andrew Gross said that EC didnt seem so sure, we will see Monday against the young Avs.
Lines while all these guys are out.
This is while I think aves will be suspended, otherwise MZA probably stays in Hartford. Bet the Rangers wish they waited a few more days to send Kennedy down.
