Kreider was a healthy scratch for the Rangers’ 2-1 road loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night, but was absent from the team’s practice Saturday morning with the injury. Tortorella said Kreider suffered in the injury during his time with Connecticut of the American Hockey League.
"I don’t know exactly what it is,' Tortorella said. "But it's not a serious injury. He'll get a couple days rest and we’ll see what happens from there."
The Rangers face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night and are scheduled to face the Flyers at home on Tuesday night.
They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
