In case you missed it, Mats Zuccarello skated this morning on his own before the New York Rangers took the ice for practice. Zucc has been out since Game 5 of the first round with a concussion, suffered after taking a shot from Ryan McDonagh to the skull.
While Zuccarello skating is always good to see, his return to the lineup is not imminent. This is normal progress, and I still wouldn’t expect him back this series. Concussions are always tricky, so it’s better to air on the side of caution instead of getting your hopes up."Mats Zuccarello skates on his own; No timetable for his return",
