The New York Rangers defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 2-1 Tuesday night for their 2nd straight victory, sending their record back to .500 at 3-3. Henrik Lundqvist had perhaps his best performance of the 2013 season, only giving up a goal midway through the 3rd and the Blueshirts were boosted from goals by Michael Del Zotto and Ryan Callahan at MSG.
But it is the injury to Captain Cally that has everyone worried.
Following a scrum and some fisticuffs with Max Talbot during the 3rd period, Ryan Callahan came up holding his shoulder, and headed to the locker room immediately.
In their tie up, Talbot clutched Callahan’s arm as they both fell to the ground. It seemed like this led to Cally falling strangely and the injury, a possible dislocation, occurring then. He did not return to the game. The Rangers would not give any more information on Callahan tonight.
For now, we do know King Henrik made 26 saves in a fine performance that regained New York’s grasp of superiority over the Flyers; prior to last week’s loss, the Flyers had not beaten the Blueshirts in two seasons.
The Rangers draw the Penguins on Thursday.
Wednesday Update: 10-14 days for Callahan’s recovery:
