Some Good News Regarding Sean Avery

From Steve Zipay at Blue Notes:

It’s in the same vein as Ryan Callahan’s, according to a team spokesman.  Will either play against the Islanders Tuesday?  We’ll know more tomorrow.

One possible scenario: Hold both out for two-game Florida trip. That would mean three additional days off if neither player practices until Thursday with the team in the Sunshine State.

Should the Rangers decide not to call up another sub from the Wolf Pack for the game in Uniondale, winger Enver Lisin could be the 12th forward.  He’ll add some speed because the Blueshirts are getting thin in that aspect upfront.

Not entirely bad news, I guess. Avery has been terrific the last two weeks and we all know that Callahan works hard every single game so obviously, it’d be great to have these guys in the lineup. However, it’s obviously better to have them when they are healthy.
