Ryane Clowe Leaves Game, Wont Return
The New York Rangers continue to struggle to clinch a playoff spot and might need to do so without a key trade deadline acquisition. Ryane Clowe was injured during Thursdays game against the Carolina Hurricanes and wont return, according to the Bergen Records Andrew Gross.
Its unclear whether the issue is even an upper-body or lower-body injury, although Gross hypothesizes that the big forwards leg is bothering him.
In the meantime, it looks like Chris Kreider will get a chance to prove that he deserves more reps. Helping the Rangers beat the Hurricanes certainly would be a good start.
