JT Miller Hurt (Update: Wrist Issue & Rangers Recall Newbury)

Update, 2:08 p.m.:
According to Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record, the reason Miller left practice was due to a left wrist injury he suffered against the Panthers.

Miller's x-ray results were negative, be he is questionable for tomorrow's game vs. the Caps.

Here's Miller on the injury (via Newsday)…

"It's just sore, it was pretty swollen. It feels OK now, but when I was trying to shoot I could feel the tendons pop…they're loose."

And in the event Miller can't go the Rangers have announced that they have recalled Kris Newbury from the Whale.

Kevin DeLury:
Very similar to Haley, Newbury is a guy who will stick-up for teammates and adds some toughness to the line-up. Kreider also spoke glowingly of Newbury after being recalled the other day.

The question is, does Newbury play tomorrow regardless of Miller's status? And if he does, who comes out? Pyatt? Boyle? Richards?

Not exactly news you want to wake up to…

Awesome, the Rangers can't get in the way of their opponents, but they can get in the way of themselves.

By all accounts, Lundqvist avoided injury. Lucky for the Rangers, especially if Hank is still rehabbing a stiff neck.

The Rangers had a second practice session this morning that Miller did not participate in. No time to panic, yet.
