The Rangers confirmed that Darius Kasparaitis was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons after experiencing shortness of breath, and has already been released.
If that’s the good news, you’re not going to like the bad.
The team also said Fedor Tyutin had an MRI done on his left MCL sprain and will be out three to four weeks. No word on who the Rangers will call up to replace him, although Thomas Pock will obviously fill his spot in the lineup.
Still, this isn’t good. Tyutin has been one of the team’s steadiest players all season, and was having a particularly sharp game against the Penguins before the injury.
