Back Tonight? Rangers Activate Marc Staal Off IR

The Rangers have activated defenseman Marc Staal off injured reserve, according to ESPN New Yorks Katie Strang.

While theres no guarantee well see him tonight, the bet is that Staal whos been sidelined since March 5 when he was struck in the eye with a puck during a game against the Philadelphia Flyers will be in the lineup at Madison Square Garden for Game 3 of the Rangers series with the Capitals.

Washington leads the series, 2-0.

If Staal does play, how many minutes hes able to log will be worth watching. During the regular season, he averaged 24:27 per game, second to Dan Girardis 25:25.
