GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Rangers defenseman Michael Sauer was a no-show for his group's on-ice session for the second straight day at the MSG Training Center.
Sauer is dealing with tendinitis in his right knee, Rangers coach John Tortorella said Friday. Tortorella said then he didn't think the injury was serious, but he was concerned because he missed a day of training.
Now Sauer has missed two. Tortorella will likely address Sauer's situation when he meets with the media Saturday afternoon. Sauer had 15 points in 76 games last season.
After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
