Rangers captain Ryan Callahan will be sidelined for 10 to 14 days after hurting his shoulder in New York’s victory over Philadelphia on Tuesday night.
Callahan scored the winning goal against the Flyers but was injured early in the third period during a scuffle with Philadelphia forward Max Talbot.
After undergoing an MRI on Wednesday, Callahan was diagnosed with a subluxation of his left shoulder. The forward was dragged down by the arm by Talbot and immediately skated off. His left arm dangled as Callahan went down the tunnel to the locker room.
In the second period, Callahan scored to give the Rangers a 2-0 lead. It was his 200th point in the NHL.
If the injury timetable is correct, Callahan would miss six games over the next two weeks – starting with a home matchup against Atlantic Division rival Pittsburgh on Thursday night.
