Ranger Woes

via the NY Post (reg. req.),
The Rangers have little choice but to try to return Jaromir Jagr into action despite his left arm injury, probably a shoulder dislocation, suffered in Game 1. The twists and turns have all gone against the New Yorkers already. The Devils are operating on the assumption Jagr will shrug off his injury and suit up for the Blueshirts at the Meadowlands. The Rangers are already considering dumping folk hero Henrik Lundqvist in favor of 2002 Devils-killer Kevin Weekes in goal
via Larry Brooks of the NY Post (reg. req.),
Jason Ward, a PK specialist who left Saturday's game with what has been diagnosed as an isolated MCL sprain of the right knee will be unavailable for the remainder of the first round, if not longer. Rucinsky, meanwhile, is all but certain to not only miss tonight's match, but Wednesday's Game 3 at the Garden. It's possible he'd be able to return either next Saturday for Game 4 or next Sunday for a hypothetical Game 5. "I'm really limited; I can't really do much," said Rucinsky. "I'd hoped I could do more with a new splint on the finger, but it didn't work out. As anxious as I am to play, it makes no sense to go out there if I'm going to be useless and can't contribute."
