It was a scary sight for fans of the New York Rangers on Tuesday, as Captain Ryan Callahan was hurt in a scrap with Philadelphia’s Max Talbot. After an MRI on Wednesday, Callahan found that he had a subluxation and will miss about 10 days to two weeks.
Thought it was the best case scenario, one hates to see the Blueshirts heart out for any amount of time. Especially with the up-and-down season that the team is having thus far in what is a shortened season for the Rangers.
Stu Bickel and Mike Rupp have both been skating on the fourth line during practice on Wednesday. Taylor Pyatt, who has made an immediate impact with the team, was moved to Callahan’s spot during the skate.
Though head coach John Tortorella will not reveal his starting lineup as of yet, it might just be a matter of time before the Rangers call up someone from their AHL affiliate the Connecticut Whale to help bolster the lines.
Stay tuned as the Blueshirts will next be in action on Thursday to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins.
