Rangers place Powe on IR, recall Mashinter

The New York Rangers placed forward Darroll Powe on injured reserve Monday, less than 24 hours after a scary fall to the ice in a game against the Washington Capitals.

Early in the second period of Sunday's 2-1 win, Powe had an accidental collision with Capitals forward Matt Hendricks in the neutral zone. Hendricks and Powe did not see each other until the last second, resulting in Powe flipping over Hendricks and hitting his head on the ice.

Powe stayed down for several minutes and was eventually helped off the ice by teammates. He did not return to the game.

To take Powe's roster spot, the Rangers recalled Brandon Mashinter from the Connecticut Whale of the AHL.

Rookie forward Chris Kreider, out of the lineup the past two games as a healthy scratch, could return to the lineup in Powe's absence.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
