According to Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record, Brad Richards had an x-ray on his left index finger after taking an unpenalized slash to the hand by Eric Staal in the third period last night.
Here's Richards on the injury…
"I don’t think that’s going to be an issue," Richards said. "It’s a bit of a stinger while it happens and, hopefully, tomorrow I wake up a little sore and move on."
After the shift, Richards was seen yelling at the ref and wincing in pain on the bench as he observed the damage to his fingers.
…i'm just waiting to hear the words no Rangers fan wants spoken, "Brad Richards is out for the season." And not because the Blueshirts will lose one of their most consistent scorers, but because he would become ineligible to be amnestied this offseason.
