First Ryan Callahan of the Rangers followed below by Sergei Gonchar of the Senators.
FYI, with the Ottawa win, the top eight teams in the Eastern Conference are settled (Winnipeg eliminated tonight), but some position-jockeying still remains.
The Rangers have not given an update on the status of the injury Callahan suffered tonight.
By the looks of it, is appears to be a shoulder injury.
Hey, Joseph, shake hands with the home captain, avoid the visiting captain!
What is a captain? “A person who is at the head of or in authority over others; chief; leader.” What is a hockey captain? “A locker room leader, motivator; a medium between players and upper management; a primary representative of the team both on and off the ice.”
It is a unique situation this off-season that all three New York City metro area teams will be naming a new captain for the upcoming 2011-2012 season. The New York Rangers have the most candidates and are probably in the best situation with the most quality choices to choose from. So, we will start with the Rangers and then look at the Devils, who have both the easiest and hardest choices of the three, and finally we will look at the New York Islanders who have the youngest crop of candidates with the most potential.

#Rangers Ryan Callahan new 3 year deal is believed to be in the ball park of 13M.
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.
From Jesse Spector at The Blueshirts Blog:
One more injury for the Rangers in this MASH unit regular season, and it’s a big one. Ryan Callahan is “out indefinitely” with a broken ankle, and John Tortorella called it a “long-term” issue after the winger blocked a Zdeno Chara slap shot late in the third period of last night’s 5-3 win over the Bruins at the Garden.
Callahan, who returned to the lineup on February 1 after breaking his hand blocking a Kris Letang shot on December 15 in Pittsburgh, will not need surgery.
Video below shows shot block which caused the injury:
via Andrew Gross of Rangers Rants Blog,
The Rangers got captain Chris Drury back for tonight’s game against the Penguins but promptly lost alternate captain Ryan Callahan to a broken hand.
Callahan broke his hand while on the penalty kill at 4:42 of the first period, blocking Kris Letang’s wrist shot. He was led to the team’s dressing room by trainer Jim Ramsey as soon as he left the ice.
Callahan had become the team leader in Drury’s absence and had 10 goals and 13 assists while playing 31 of the team’s first 32 games.
added 10:30pm, watch how the injury occurred below…
Ryan Callahan received two minutes for throwing this elbow at the Islanders Frans Nielsen.
No audio in the video and probably a good thing, since it won’t sway you one way or the other.
All I can say is one fan base is not happy right now.
My opinion- how about a non-call?
added 9:27pm, Replaced the removed video with one of much poorer quality.
update 9:40pm, A new video, at this rate, I will be here all night.
Chris Botta of Fanhouse has some reaction to the call.
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has agreed to terms with forward Ryan Callahan.
