Blueshirts Could Be in Trouble Without Cally and Avery

From great friend of the blog Nicholas Montemagno of The Rangers Tribune:

The last thing the Rangers needed was two of their more energetic and passionate players suffer from injuries in the middle of a playoff push. Unfortunately, that is the case with Ryan Callahan and Sean Avery both injuring their legs when attempting to beat out an icing call this past week. Callahan’s occurred last Sunday in Boston when he collided with defenseman Zdeno Chara. Callahan did in fact make a return after that injury in the next game against the Islanders, but then re-aggravated the pain in his right leg Thursday in New Jersey.

Sean Avery has been playing some of the best hockey of his career as of late. It has not only been scoring goals, but using his mouth, skating, knowing how to get under the skin of opponents. Sean has been a key to the Rangers recent success, or, at least their two-game success. That being said, it is going to hurt this team if Avery is out long term after having his leg pinched along the boards when chasing a puck against Luke Schenn last night in Toronto.
