The Rangers are calling Jaromir Jagr’s groin injury day-to-day, which basically sums up our entire existence. But at least he has some time to rest: the team is off the ice completely today, then is only practicing tomorrow in preparation for Tuesday’s tilt with the Islanders.
My guess is that if the Big Fella is even slightly questionable, he’ll sit, if only to err on the side of caution. And having dealt with some groin issues myself this year — how’s that for too much information? — the only known solution is to rest.
In the meantime, happy football-watching. I’m a life-long Jets fan, but in my own twisted mind, I can’t help but think both New York team’s elimination from the playoffs might shift some needed attention on hockey. But I’m still behind them, and be sure to give some blog love to my two talented colleagues, “Andrew Gross on the Jets”:http://jets.lohudblogs.com/ (who many of you already know set a high standard as my predecessor on the Rangers beat), and the dean of the Giants beat, “Ernie Palladino”:http://giants.lohudblogs.com/ .
