Since returning to the Rangers lineup on Thursday, Ryan Callahan has played:
- (Islanders) 19:22, tw0 shots, one shot that missed the net, four hits, a takeaway and two blocked shots. He played 6:28 on the PK
- (Tampa Bay) 17:46 with a goal, five hits, one shot that was blocked, one that missed the net and a blocked shot.
Following the Rangers win over the Lightning on Sunday, Joe Micheletti spoke glowingly of Callahan, “you just never get cheated watching Ryan Callahan play. His shoulder is perfect. First on the puck, hit everyone, blocks shots. Key part of PK and always around the front of the net. Always seems to be in perfect position”
Dave Maloney agreed and added, “the Rangers to a large degree are Ryan Callahan.”
