Steve Zipay takes you inside the locker room, home and on the road, with the New York Rangers, and also writes about the NHL, off and on the ice.

Callahan: "No restrictions" on shoulder

Could the captain be back for the Islanders game Thursday?

That would be a little early, according to the original predictions based on the examination of his dislocated shoulder, but I wouldn't count him out. He termed himelf day to day, but given his compete level, he'll push to be cleared to play.

As for Dan Girardi, who missed last night's game (Banged up, day-to-day), he wasn't on the ice.

But it was an optional skate and Brad Richards and Marc Staal opted for the day of rest.

Rangers and coaches are meeting now, we're waiting to speak with Torts, so stay tuned.
