NEW YORK, N.Y. - Rangers forward Chris Kreider is sitting out against the Philadelphia Flyers because of a left hand injury that also will force him to skip at least New York's upcoming four-game Western Conference trip.

The 22-year-old Kreider was injured Friday night in New York's win at Columbus, but played in the next two games — including Monday night's win over Phoenix. But the left winger, who has 17 goals and 37 points this season, was limited to about 10 minutes of ice time in each of the previous games.

Details of the injury haven't been released, and it hasn't been determined whether Kreider will need surgery. The Rangers said Wednesday he wouldn't go on the trip that begins Friday at Calgary.

New York recalled 21-year-old centre J.T. Miller from Hartford of the AHL, and he was in the lineup against the Flyers.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
