now you have defenseman Aaron Ward, who sat out today’s practice because of a tweak in the same area.
Ward said he first felt something in the second period in Philadelphia on Saturday, but that some treatment from the Rangers’ trainers got him through the game. Now the question is whether he’ll be ready for tomorrow night’s rematch with the Flyers at the Garden. As expected, Tom Renney said they’ll re-evaluate Ward in the morning; and Ward, for his part, said if it were up to him, he’d play
Atleast these "tweakings"/Injury's are happening early on in the season rather than last season which they seemed to snow ball through the lockerroom. I wouldnt expect Ward to be out next game, but thats sheer assumption and speculation.
I'd keep Rachunek in. Before recieving that hit that hurt him a bit in the last game, i felt that he played a pretty good game. i still think the guy can be one our better D-men this year. And forget about the crap in the past.
