Girardi (upper-body) missed Friday’s practice; questionable for Saturday’s season finale.
Girardi suffered an upper-body injury on Tuesday and missed Thursday’s game vs. the Islanders. With the Rangers having little to nothing to play for in Saturday’s game, expect him to sit out in an attempt to be ready for Game 1 of the playoffs.
Head coach Alain Vigneault would not confirm that Girardi would play, but Girardi had no problem saying he will play. Bleeding in his leg has stopped so he feels good and ready to go tonight vs. the Devils.
Girardi (leg) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault did not shed any light on if Girardi would play tonight or not. He would only divulge that if Girardi can't play, that Mike Kostka would slide into the lineup. We probably won't hear if he will play until pre-game warmups.
Girardi (leg) is on the ice for the Rangers optional morning skate.
Girardi was considered questionable for tonight's game after getting stitches in his leg on Sunday. Head coach Alain Vigneault is expected to address the media shortly, so we will learn Girardi's status for tonight at that time.
Girardi (leg) is not on the ice for Rangers' practice on Monday.
Girardi left Sunday's game after taking a snapshot to the back of his leg. He had to get stitches to repair a cut on his leg and he is considered day-to-day. The Rangers will take on the Devils tomorrow and if Girardi is unable to go, he is expected to be replaced by Mike Kostka.
Girardi (lower-body) left Sunday's game and will not return.
Girardi was injured when he blocked a shot in the early in the third period. He played just one shift in the third and will not return. This would be a huge loss for a Rangers blueline that is already struggling in the early part of the season.
