NEW YORK -- If there were any concerns about Ryan Callahan's availability for Game 7 on Thursday night, he put them to rest this morning.
The Rangers' captain took part in practice in preparation for a do-or-die contest with the Ottawa Senators at Madison Square Garden after being given a "maintenance day" Wednesday. Callahan blocked a shot with his hand during Game 6 and received attention from a trainer on the bench but stayed in the game.
Callahan showed no ill effects from the injury at practice and said he is "fine" for Game 7.
In other injury news for the Rangers, center Brian Boyle (concussion) did not participate in the game-day skate and will not be available.
