    Rangers' Kevin Klein: Scores fourth goal of season

    Klein scored his fourth goal of the season in a 2-1 win over the Devils on Monday. The rearguard's tally opened the scoring 4:47 in the second period. Believe it or not, Klein has been playing with a fractured thumb suffered against these same Devils on Feb. 2, so it must have felt great for him to find twine -- especially against one of the league's best netminders in Corey Schneider. Klein has just 11 points on the year but owns a plus-14 rating, which gives him value in the deepest leagues.

    Rangers' Kevin Klein: Probable for Saturday's matinee

    Klein (thumb) is expected to play in Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon. Klein missed one game after fracturing his thumb in a contest against the Devils on Tuesday night, but it appears the defenseman is not going to let the ailment hold him out of further action. Klein reportedly wore a splint on the injured thumb and managed to get in a full practice Friday, putting him on track for what promises to be an intense Broadway versus Broad Street rivalry match Saturday.

    Rangers' Kevin Klein: Could return Saturday

    Klein (thumb) could return to the lineup for Saturday's game against the Flyers. Klein's fractured thumb appears to be less of an issue than originally thought, and his return to practice Thursday certainly bodes well for his chances of rejoining the lineup sooner rather than later. The call on the blueliner's status for Saturday's contest will likely come on gameday, so expect another update when that happens.

    Rangers' Kevin Klein: Participates in practice Thursday

    Klein (thumb) skated with his teammates in practice Thursday morning, the New York Daily News reports. Well, this is quite the surprising turn of events. Two days after fracturing his right thumb, Klein was right back out there practicing in full. He's not in Thursday's lineup, but it sounds like his absence may be much shorter than initially anticipated.

    Rangers' Kevin Klein: Out indefinitely following thumb fracture

    Klein suffered a fractured thumb in Tuesday's game against the Devils and will miss an indefinite amount of time. Klein exited Tuesday's game late with the issue, but the team wasn't willing to provide an update following the game. It appears X-rays have revealed a fracture in his thumb, and the Rangers will be down at least one man along the blue line for the time being. With an open-ended timetable, the team should further update his status as Klein moves closer to playing again.

    Rangers' Kevin Klein: Snaps five-game point drought

    Klein logged an assist in Monday's 6-3 victory over the Sabres. The veteran defenseman not only snapped out of a five game point-scoring drought but also logged two hits and four blocked shots on the night. After getting off to another fiery start, it's fair to say Klein has come back down to earth, earning just 10th point of the season in 37 games played. Perhaps this is a sign of things to come for Klein who also boasts a plus-14 rating, but we would have to see him start stringing points together again before we could recommend the third-pair defenseman.

    Rangers' Kevin Klein: Game-time decision Tuesday

    Klein (thumb) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Canucks. Klein was a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Washington due to a sore thumb, and ultimately missed the contest with that ailment. Klein will likely once again take the ice for pregame warmups ahead of Tuesday's tilt, at which point the Rangers should determine whether or not he'll be in the lineup. If Klein is unable to go, Dylan McIlrath will draw into New York's lineup in his absence.
