The Rangers practiced on Monday as they get set for their first game since their January 19th victory over the Boston Bruins. Here are a couple of updates.

Zuccarello OUT against Philadelphia – After not practicing yesterday for what was called a maintenance day, the Rangers announced that Zuccarello has a foot infection that will keep him sidelined, at a minimum, until Thursday night in New Jersey. Hopefully we will see the diminutive Norwegian return to the ice sooner rather tahn later.

Zibanejad scare in practice – There was a bit of concern for Mika Zibanejad at practice today as he came up hobbling after taking a shot during power play drills, according to Colin Stephenson of Newsday.

Stephenson did report that David Quinn said Zibanejad would be able to go tomorrow night against the Flyers, as the Rangers look to win their fourth straight game.
