Girardi, who sat out Sunday against the Ducks, will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Sharks. Girardi has only played in one March game, but he recorded 20:03 of ice time, one assist, and dished out three hits -- a solid contribution. This season has been filled with ups and downs for the blueliner, making him a risky start in most leagues.
Girardi, who logged a helper in his return to action Saturday, sat out Sunday's game against the Ducks, the Daily News reports. With Girardi a healthy scratch, Kevin Klein returned the team's blue line mix Sunday. Now that the Rangers are past their latest set of back-to-back games, Girardi is a candidate to return to the lineup Tuesday against the Sharks.
Girardi (ankle) will return to the Rangers' lineup for Saturday's away game against the Kings. While Girardi is still technically on injured reserve per the NHL's official media site, all signs point to him being removed from that list prior to puck drop in Los Angeles on Saturday. The 32-year-old is slated to skate on New York's first defensive pairing with Ryan McDonagh, seemingly assuring that he will see a healthy amount of minutes upon his return.
Girardi (ankle) has been cleared medically but will not suit up for Tuesday's game in New Jersey. He will travel with the team on its upcoming California road trip, indicating that he won't likely be ready for Wednesday's matchup with the Islanders either. While it could frustrating to hear that Girardi is likely to miss two more games after having already missed the last 10, he does finally appear to be nearing a return, which could come as soon as Saturday in Los Angeles. Per the NHL's official media site, the veteran defenseman remains on injured reserve for the time being.
Girardi (ankle) skated Monday, but still won't play Tuesday in New Jersey, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports. The blueliner has been out since Feb. 28 and will still need a bit more time to return. Considering he can't play Tuesday, it seems unlikely that he'll return Wednesday against the Islanders, but further update should be provided prior to that contest.
