Marc Staal Update:
#NYR News: Marc Staal skated yesterday and is doing so again after the AM skate today— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) December 22, 2013
To watch Staal discuss his recovery, click here.
- Minnesota is 1-5-1 in its last six road games.
- Wild starting goaltender Josh Harding was placed on injured reserve Wednesday in order to evaluate his medication for multiple sclerosis.
- Niklas Backstrom has lost five straight starts while posting a 3.23 GAA.
- Zach Parise has just one points (a goal) and is a -4 in his last five games.
- Jason Pominville has seven points (3g, 4a) in his last 10 games.
- Ryan Suter is goalless in 37 games this season.
- Dany Heatley snapped a nine-game goalless streak on Thursday night in Pittsburgh.
- Matt Cooke leads the team with 88 hits.
- Yeah, that Matt Cooke. The same idiot who did this to Ryan McDonagh in 2011...
...hey look, the 2010-11 team didn't standup for each other either as not a single Rangers player even bothered to skate over to Cooke after that disgusting elbow.

Jameson = nectar of the gods and our good luck charm! Our Norwegian leprechaun stood tall and used his ring to bury a big one!
Does MSG really listen to the songs of our 'victory' song? And I quote ' wake me up when it's all over'. Why is winning too much to take?
Sorry I have been so busy tonight trying to find the rangers game. I keep telling Verizon that MSG is giving them a game from a few years ago. In all seriousness, I do hope that this helps the team come together, but we will see in less than 24 hours.
c'mon finish this http://i.imgur.com/uhET3o9.gif
Duguay just said it "if only every ranger fought like that" "if every ranger pushed back like that" RE Zucc. ZUCCBLOG

No Queen Hank will play the next 4 games since Talbot is 7-2.
@NYR44 Sather: his love of the halfings' leaf has clearly slowed his mind.
