Doctors optimistic Rangers defenceman Marc Staal will recover fully from eye injury

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Doctors are optimistic that New York Rangers defenceman Marc Staal will recover fully after being struck in the eye by a deflected puck.

Staal was injured Tuesday night in the third period of New York's 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers. The 26-year-old defenceman will be sidelined indefinitely, but was already showing improvement on Wednesday, the Rangers said in a statement.

Staal's specific injury hasn't been disclosed.
