Gaborik participated in the Rangers’ optional morning skate, his first time on the ice since he got hurt in front of the Coyotes’ net in the third period of Monday’s 5-2 win. Even so, Gaborik didn’t sound so sure afterwards when he would skate next or, more importantly, play next.
“It is disappointing but I can’t do anything about it,” Gaborik said of not being able to play in his return to Minnesota, where he spent his first eight NHL seasons with the Wild. “I’m trying to push myself to have a good feel but it’s not there. I don’t think I would b e a piece to the puzzle (tonight).
“I think I’m on the right track,” Gaborik said, before being asked whether he’d skate tomorrow - the Rangers play the Bruins Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. “I don’t know. I need to do a lot of treatment.”
I don't think it's really anything serious. He's skating, which is a good sign. At most I think he's learned his lesson with trying to play through injuries and the coaching staff and trainers do not want him to risk anything.
What cable company advertises that every Knicks/Rangers/etc. etc. game is broadcast in HD? Obviously it's not TWC. Knicks are on the road as well but they get the HD feed? How many will they lose by tonight...30?
It really is amazing how worried people are about an injury that gaborik has that is totally unrelated to his groin. Especially when it has been said numerous times that it is a minor injury. People calm the **** down. If Gaborik isn't playing in a week, then there is reason to START worrying. But do people really think the coaching staff is lying to the fan base and its actually like an ACL tear or something? Come on. Its probably a bruised leg. Gabs will be healthy in a couple days.
