Drury Out 6 Weeks; Gaborik Out 2-3 Weeks; Prospal Out Indef.

Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants gives us the bad news regarding the Rangers injuries from tonight...

"Captain Chris Drury, who was making his season’s debut after breaking his left index finger on Sept. 20 blocking a shot during a training camp scrimmage, broke the same finger in the second period and is now expected to miss another six weeks. Coach John Tortorella said it was the same finger but a new break.

Meanwhile, last year’s leading scorer Marian Gaborik is out 2-3 weeks with a separated left shoulder....Also, Tortorella announced Vinny Prospal will undergo surgery on his right knee on Tuesday and is out indefinitely."

...yikes. Talk about about bad news. It doesn't get any worse than that.

...Todd White better get limbered up because he's going to be counted on to step up. Too bad the Rangers just sent Kennedy down to Hartford. MZA?

I wonder if Wade Redden can be a forward.

this is a cursed franchise

the coach and gm are clueless and clueless-er.

our best player's luck seemingly ran out tonight.

the defense seems to, well, not know how to play defense.

its going to be a looooooooooooooong year. i guess i knew that before the puck dropped in buffalo, but now its REALLY blatant

bad schmad! the stupid isles hung in the playoff race last year with bupkiss. theres plenty of plucky-ness on this squad to stay in the mix. 3 games does not a year make.

4get drury! Gabby will be missed but player for player this team still stacks up nicely against the conference.

Lets Go Rangers!

What happened? I didn't see the game, how did Gaborik hurt his shoulder?

MBarber said...

Injuries are part of the business and they cannot control that part of it. I'm very interested how this team handles losing Gaborik, Drury, Prospal, and Christensen for a significant amount of time. Hopefully this gives players like Duninsky, Anisimov, and Stepan among others the oppertunity to shine...BTW Boyle looked like Lindros tonight! Now let's hope he keeps it up...

this game started awesome then turned into shit, then became awesome then ending in shit. just another rangers roller coaster. i would take lester patrick's zombified corpse over anything on this team right now.

We could suck for 25 games and still have enough games left to turn this ship around. What hurts is Gaborik. But maybe this is a blessing in disguise, team D will now be the emphasis or one would hope.

I'm officially eating my words about sending Kennedy down.

Ouch.

1993 - roll the tape on last time isles won a playoff series. and its not happening this yr either troll

2 games! That's all we got so far - well last year the odds were 15 games until Gaborik got hurt and he hung in there all season.

Unfortunately this may be another of his no show injury prone seasons.

F@#K Amrstrong for not dropping the gloves vs Avery and someone else should have gone after him right away after the boarding hit.
