Specifics are scarce so far on Marc Staal’s condition after taking a puck to/near his eye on Tuesday.
New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella seems like he’s in the same boat as everyone else.
“It’s scary,” Tortorella said.
Fellow defenseman Ryan McDonagh agreed with Tortorella that it was scary, noting to Blueshirts United’s Jim Cerny that “you could tell how much pain he was in immediately.”
There’s no word yet on whether Staal, 26, will go to the hospital for treatment and evaluation. We’ll provide a more substantial update once they become available.
The Rangers won tonight’s game 4-2 against the Philadelphia Flyers.
