Rough, rough night for the Rangers well beyond their 3-0 loss to the Canadiens that brings their losing streak to a season-high three games.

Defenseman Ryan McDonagh suffered a concussion when his head was driven into the glass by the Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty at 7:20 of the second period. McDonagh did not return to the game and was not in the locker room. Tortorella opened his post-game presser by asking the media how high the reporters thought Pacioretty jumped. Getting no answer, Tortorella asked again, then adding, “Over/under?” He shot down a guess of six inches but offered no answer himself, no doubt wanting to stay clear of seeming to criticize the NHL or the officials. The league will certainly review Pacioretty’s boarding penalty, especially since he used his elbow and it came in prompt response to a McDonagh check against him along the side boards. But watching the replay myself, including in slow motion, I’m not convinced Pacioretty leaped off the ice. Perhaps his skates were a couple of inches up but it was more how he turned his body and got his elbow directly to McDonagh’s head that was disturbing.

Tortorella did not offer any word on the severity of the injury to McDonagh or to Dan Girardi. Girardi took P.K. Subban’s power-play slap shot off his right ankle with 1:23 remaining in the game and had to be helped directly off the ice. At 19:17, Travis Moen ran into Marty Biron and the goalie said after the game that he was hit in the head (Biron was allowed to talk to the media and said he felt fine, I don’t believe there’s any cause for concussion alarm here).

That shot Girardi took off the ankle was brutal. The replay just made it look worse.. and painful. A big loss right there.

McDonagh and Girardi is our top d pairing.  The Rangers playoff hopes were slipping away over the past week as it is, but losing both of them at once would really kill the team.

 

Current list of injured Rangers: Nash, Powe, Girardi, McDonagh, DelZotto, Asham, Sauer.  Might be easier to list the big league guys who aren't injured.

Damn. I wasn't sure about DelZotto's status, but I forgot about Asham and Sauer. That really sucks.

For now, courtesy of TSN’s Bob McKenzie, here are two bits of news regarding the Rangers.

1. The Canadiens’ Max Pacioretty has a 4 p.m. disciplinary hearing set with Brendan Shanahan regarding his hit on Ryan McDonagh in last night’s 3-0 loss for the Rangers. There’s a strong likelihood McDonagh was concussed on the play and the league will also likely take into account the fact that Pacioretty may have been looking for McDonagh, who had not only laid a hard previous check on Pacioretty but had also gotten his stick in Brandon Prust’s face, forcing the ex-Ranger to briefly repair to the dressing room for repairs.

2. X-rays on Dan Girardi’s right foot/ankle were negative, though that shouldn’t be read as affirmation that Girardi will be right back in the Rangers’ lineup. Even if it’s not a break, a deep bone bruise could hobble Girardi for a while. Again, there should be further updates tomorrow when the Rangers are back at their practice rink.

Good news Girardi's ankle isn't broken. Bone bruises, on the other hand, are a bitch to work through.

Richards isn't injured. Or is he?

I can't say whether he's actually injured or not, but he's still playing - and I use that term loosely.

No discipline for Pacioretty.

 

Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty was neither fined or suspended after a telephone hearing Sunday afternoon with the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety for an incident in a Saturday night game against the New York Rangers.

Pacioretty was assessed a minor for boarding Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh at the 7:20 mark of the second period of the game at the Bell Center. McDonagh left the game and did not return.

The Department of Player Safety examined boarding and/or charging infractions as the basis for potential Supplemental Discipline during the hearing.

Pacioretty was interviewed at length and the Department of Player Safety decided that Supplemental Discipline was not appropriate.
