Karlsson misses practice, expected to play vs. Rangers
NEW YORK -- Erik Karlsson, the NHL's leading scorer among defensemen, was not on the ice Wednesday for Ottawa Senators practice at Chelsea Piers.

Senators coach Paul MacLean said afterward that Karlsson's absence was only precautionary and he should be ready to face the Rangers on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden.

Karlsson tweaked an upper-body injury before Tuesday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins and did not play after taking part in the pre-game warmups.

Karlsson led all vote getters for this year's Tim Hortons NHL All-Star Game, which will take place in Ottawa.

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
