The news: Both Ryan Callahan (personal issues) and Marian Gaborik (flu) returned to practice today after missing Monday’s workout. So the Rangers were able to focus on the power play and special teams in general.
Nothing new on Chris Kreider. I still think he’s on the verge of signing. I don’t think it matters much at all whether it’s today or tomorrow or yesterday … don’t think the plan is for him to play in the playoffs barring the unforeseen. That said, the unforeseen usually does happen in the playoffs — injuries, etc. So I suppose a door could open for him at some point.
