Report: Rangers' Staal back on the ice
Injured New York Rangers defenseman and Marc Staal has begun skating lightly on his own at the team's practice facility in Greenburgh, N.Y., according to a report from ESPNNewYork.com, which cites sources.

Staal reportedly skated briefly Monday and was on the ice again Tuesday morning. He has not played this season due to the aftereffects of a concussion he suffered Feb. 22, a result of a hard hit he took from his older brother, Carolina captain Eric Staal.

The Rangers host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden (7:30 p.m. ET, Versus, TSN2).

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.

— Nashville captain Shea Weber in an interview with the Predators website
