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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
