Description: Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh left Saturday's game against the Canadiens after taking an elbow to the back from Max Pacioretty that drove him into the glass face-first. McDonagh may have suffered a concussion on the play, according to the New York Daily News.
Insight: New York's defenseman are dropping like flies. The Blueshirts also lost Dan Girardi to a leg injury after he took a P.K. Subban slapshot off his right ankle late in the third period. Michael Del Zotto was already out with a lower-body injury and Marc Staal was less than 100 percent with the flu Saturday. Staal might be the only healthy player out of New York's top-four blueliners when the Rangers host Winnipeg Tuesday.
