Dan Girardi out two weeks with ankle injury
Update: Girardi will be out ten days to two weeks. Steven Kampfer has been recalled.
Original Post: The Rangers have announced that Dan Girardi will be out tonight, dealing with recurring effects of his ankle injury. With Kevin Klein still out, that leaves the Rangers with just five defensemen. Something is coming to address this, in my opinion.
My guess is that Jeff Gorton is working the phones for a trade, but has a defenseman form Hartford in mind. If nothing materializes, he will file the paperwork for an emergency call up. Just my guess. Or, of course, Klein could play.
