Callahan on Crutches; Doesn’t Mean Playoff Failure

callahanAndrew Gross reports that Ryan Callahan was at the practice facility today on crutches and wearing a boot on his right foot.

Steve Zipay adds that Callahan will have x-rays every week to determine progress.

Callahan on the injury

“It (stinks)…this is a bad time of year for this to happen…and it’s unfortunate that’s it happened twice to me this year.” Callahan said. “It’s part of the game, it happens..I am sure team will respond fine & I have all the confidence in the world we’ll have good run.”

…nice to see Cally at practice today. Hoping the team can rally around the injury.

For those of you who feel the season is over without Callahan check out these other teams that rallied around a key injury to make playoff runs courtesy of Rick Carpiniello at the Rangers Report

1991-92: Adam Graves breaks Mario Lemieux’s hand in the second round. The Penguins fall behind the Rangers two games to one. And they rally to win that series and the next and, after Mario makes an early return, the Stanley Cup, not losing another game along the way.

1992-93: Dale Hunter cheap-shots Pierre Turgeon out of the playoffs in the first round. The depleted Islanders go on to shock the two-time defending champ Penguins without Turgeon before losing in the Eastern Conference final.

2000-01: Colorado’s Peter Forsberg’s spleen ruptures, requiring emergency surgery at the end of the second round. The Avalanche go on to win the Stanley Cup without Forsberg.
