Rangers’ Richards Out Again Tonight

Posted By Michelle Speaker On March 7, 2013 @ 9:29 PM In NHL | No Comments

Brad Richards will miss his second straight game tonight when his Rangers visit the Islanders.

Richards — who was crosschecked into the boards from behind Sunday by Buffalo’s Patrick Kaleta (who was suspended five games for the play) — didn’t skate this morning; however, the 32-year-old center doesn’t expect to be out much longer.

“It’s not a long-term thing,” Richards said, per the Daily News. “I went in (to the boards) pretty hard. I’ve just got to let the body regroup a little bit here … Obviously, the neck and back are a little locked up.”

The Rangers, buoyed by the return of power forward Rick Nash, have won three straight.

The Isles have won two in a row themselves, including a 6-3 win over Montreal on Tuesday.
