Rangers’ Staal Says Eye Injury ‘Way Better’
“I’m more adapted to it and a lot more used to it,” Staal said. “The vision hasn’t changed much, but the perception, what I’m seeing on the ice, has [gotten] way better than when I was trying to come back in the playoffs a few months ago, so that’s a big step for me.”
Staal sustained a serious injury to his right eye March 5 when he was struck in the area by a shot from Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen.
Staal missed the remainder of the regular season but came back to play with a visor in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Washington Capitals. He played 17 minutes but had a setback the next day and was done for the season.
