NEW YORKNew York Rangers captain Ryan Callahan suffered an injury to what appeared to be his left arm and did not return to Tuesday’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Callahan left the ice cradling his left arm after he became tangled with the Flyers' Maxime Talbot in a post-whistle scrum. Both parties dropped their gloves, but Callahan grimaced in pain and never threw a punch before tumbling to the ice.

Earlier in the game, Callahan scored his second goal of the season, which turned out to be the game-winner as the Rangers edged the Flyers 2-1.

Rangers coach John Tortorella had no update on Callahan after the game and said he would be re-evaluated Wednesday.

It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
