Just so you remember: Gaborik has missed all but four minutes of the last five games, in which the Rangers are 3-1-1. And in the last four without him, they have scored 16 goals (3-0-1).
Seriously, he remains the meal ticket along with the goaltender, and if he’s going to play tonight he better be 100 percent sure he’s well enough that he won’t make this injury a long-term one. Unlike showing up for a Bronze Medal game and risking games for the team that pays him $7.5M per.
I don’t have much to say or much time to say it today. I’ll check in before the game.
