Some people are missing the point about the pittsburgh series. He disappeared way before the spleen injury. Its great he fought through it, but he wasn't a factor for the other 2 games prior. The penguins weren't biting on his agitation, and I don't remember him being overly physical except for the Fleury thing.

Lets not pretend like he was diagnosed with the spleen in game 1 and fought through it, because that is not what happened. Not to take anything away from him and his guts which I respect, but he probably didn't know what it was until he had the collapse. He probably just though he got bruised or something else. Its not like he sat there and said, "well I can tell my spleen is lacerated, I could play or die. I'm going to choose to play."

Also,for what its worth, the rangers won the only game of that series, when he was out.
