Zuccarello skated this morning and sat in on video (probably as always) session but not yet ready to return #nyr

Rangers say Zuccarello skated lightly on his own this morning but no change in status, still out indefinitely. Obvious positive sign, tho.

This is great news even if he can’t return to the ECF. If the Rangers do get to the Finals, they will need Mats to balance the offense.
