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

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
