Marty Straka didn’t skate at practice today, and tomorrow against the Penguins seems unlikely.
Both Tom Renney and Straka also acknowledged that the shoulder injury is something that the forward is going to need to address during the off-season.
That said, Straka reported improvement from yesterday, so there remains the chance he makes further gains when he wakes up tomorrow.
Some other updates:
As for Mara’s adventures last night, the defenseman couldn’t get on one flight because he arrived too late, then was supposed to take the Garden’s private jet that was in Boston with the Knicks. But because Mara was separated from his bags, he ended up taking a commercial flight at 7, and thus missed the game. Good thing the Rangers didn’t need him.
