Rangers' Kevin Klein: Expects to play Wednesday

Klein (back) told reporters Tuesday that he'll be good to go for Wednesday night's game with the Red Wings.

While Klein hasn't received official clearance from his head coach or training staff, his comfort level in dealing with the back spasms suggests that he's healthy enough to play his first game of the season Wednesday. He'll look to expand on his recent success, as he's put up nine goals and 17 assists in each of the last two seasons.
