"Gaborik was playing along," Tortorella said, adding Gaborik came out of today's day after complaining of being off, which, Tortorella said, was the first time Gaborik had given the Rangers any concrete indication. "I know he's had some conversations off the ice, he just wasn't dead on. But that's something we're going to have to talk to him and Rammer (trainer Jim Ramsey) about.
"It didn't happen this game, I'm not sure when it happened," Tortorella said at first, before softening those comments. "He's been off and on. I don't know when it happened."
...if the Rangers knew he had a concussion and still allowed him to play this will be the biggest concussion bungle since the Mets with Ryan Church. I'll reserve further judgement until we hear more details.
Kris Newbury has been recalled from the CT Whale.
