Per ESPN’s Katie Strang, Ryan McDonagh will not play tonight against the Ottawa Senators. No real surprise there. I would think that if McDonagh doesn’t play up for this coming Thursday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres, Rangers fans should start to worry. Until that time comes, nothing to really fret about.
The Rangers’ magic number is 1. They clinch tonight with a win against the Senators OR a loss by both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the New Jersey Devils.
