While things couldn't have gone better for the Rangers on the ice at MSG last night, unfortunately, they received some bad news from Hartford as Jesper Fast had to be helped off the ice after suffering a sprained ankle during the Wolfpack's 3-2 loss to Springfield.
Wolfpack play-by-play man Bob Crawford noted that Fast was not putting any weight on his leg when he left the ice.
Two years ago, Fast suffered a gruesome foot injury while playing in Sweden. Here's video of that injury…
…with the way the Rangers have been playing, I'm not sure if we would have seen Fast back up with the big club this year anyway, but if this is a long term injury it'll obviously have a negative effect on his development going forward. Let's just hope it's not too serious.
In a piece of good news from Hartford, Danny Kristo picked up his 8th goal in 12 games during the loss.
Pat Leonard at the Daily News feels that with the Rangers scheduled to play the Ducks and Penguins this week, it wouldn’t be surprising to see either Kristo or Marek Hrivik get a call-up.
Kristo goal at 2:08 mark…
…with Pyatt having another God awful game last night, you have to assume the chances of Kristo being recalled are becoming greater by the day.
