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

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.
