Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
The Rangers tell you they will pay the price, the Rangers prove to you that they will pay the price, and now, the Rangers have paid the price for the necessarily reckless and relentless way they sacrifice their bodies in order to win hockey games.
It doesn’t get much more expensive than this and it doesn’t get much more devastating than this. The Rangers will first attempt to clinch a playoff spot and then attempt to do damage in the tournament without Ryan Callahan, who will be sidelined indefinitely with the broken right leg he sustained at the Garden on Monday night blocking a Zdeno Chara shot with 1:45 to go and his team protecting a one-goal lead in what became an emotional 5-3 victory over the Bruins.
This isn’t simply about the loss of the team’s spiritual leader, though there is that. This isn’t simply about the loss of the athlete who personifies the Black-and-Blueshirt mentality that has defined this band of blue-blooded brothers, though there is that, too.
