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

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
