The New York Rangers have added veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik. New York claimed the 38-year-old Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals one day after Marc Staal was struck in the right eye by a deflected puck in the third period of the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Flyers. Staal will be out indefinitely, but doctors said he would make a full recovery. The defenseman was not wearing a visor. Hamrlik, the active leader with 1,383 NHL games played, is in the final season of a two-year, $7 million contract.

Sid the Kid is back. Sidney Crosby, the Pittsburgh Penguins star, plans to play against the New York Rangers on Thursday, his first game in more than three months following a second lengthy bout with concussion-like symptoms. On Tuesday, the 24-year-old center worked out with teammates and got bumped around enough that he feels prepared for the grind of the final month of the regular season and the playoffs. "I'm just trying to make sure I progress and remain symptom-free," he said.

The surging New York Rangers have been running away with the Eastern Conference and now they are picking up points even when they aren't playing up to the high standard they have set.

Derek Stepan and Marian Gaborik both scored tiebreaking goals in the third period, and the Rangers held on after losing in overtime at Tampa Bay on Friday.
