New York Ranges forward Ryan Callahan is out  indefinitely with a broken right ankle, an injury sustained when he got in front of a shot by  Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara in the third period of Monday's game.

"It's long-term," Rangers coach John Tortorella told reporters on Tuesday. 

Callahan is the Rangers' second-leading scorer this season with 23 goals and 25 assists. He missed 19 games this season with a broken hand after blocking a shot against the Pittsburgh Penguins

The Rangers have yet to clinch a playoff spot, but their 5-3 victory over Boston on Monday did make them a little more secure. They are in seventh place entering play Tuesday, four points ahead of ninth-place Carolina. 

Matt Gilroy will move from defense up to win to fill in for Callahan in the interim, according to The New York Daily News. The team also announced that it was sending defenseman Kris Newbury back to the AHL. 

Meanwhile, winger Chris Drury continues his rehab from February knee surgery, although there's no clear indication when he might be able ot return to the lineup.

You are a moron.  So Philly snuck in and got to the finals.  The lower seeds cant make it? You are a fool.  Just see that Flyers have lost six in a row at home.  The Rangers are probably toast without Calahan.  But the Sabres are a team to watch out for sucker. Who is your team.

Tough luck.Tthe Rangers don't belong in the play-offs anyhow. If they were so good they would have clinched a spot by now. The bottom feeders are just token teams in the play-offs. Any time a New York team doesn't make the play-offs it's great!!!!!!

Unreal, the Rangers just can't avoid the injury bug this year. What a way to take the air out of the biggest win of the year.
