Jim Cerny says Boogaard’s return is not even in the picture right now.

Update, 1:27 p.m.:
Derek Boogaard still working out in New York, while Ruslan Fedotenko continues off ice work. Feds is far off.

Update, 1:22 p.m.:
John Tortorella says Wolski tried to skate today but is still sore and will try again tomorrow.

Torts also notes that he had hoped Beanpot MVP Chris Kreider (2009 – 1st) would have turned pro last summer

“Wish he turned pro last yr/hope he turns pro next yr. We want to sink our teeth into him (asap).”

Update, 12:37 p.m.:
Rick Carpiniello at the Rangers Report says Michael Del Zotto was playing the point on the second power play unit leading him to believe MDZ will be back in the lineup on Thursday against LA.

Update, 12:35 p.m.:
Wolski says he feels better and expects to skate tomorrow, while Dubinsky missed the first session of practice to take a breather.

Update, 11:53 a.m.:
Second half of practice devoted to power play with MZA on the point for Wolski.

Update, 11:49 a.m.:
Dubinsky has joined the Rangers for the second part of practice.

Update, 11:39 a.m.:
Andrew Gross gives us this makeshift lineup with Dubinsky and Wolski out…

Mats Zuccarello-Vinny Prospal-Marian Gaborik
Sean Avery-Brian Boyle-Ryan Callahan
Derek Stepan-Erik Christensen/Artem Anisimov-Brandon Prust

…don’t get too excited about the MZA-Gabby pairing, Dubinsky will be back on the left wing Thursday against the Kings.

Original Post:
Steve Zipay tweets that both Brandon Dubinsky and Wojtek Wolski (ribs) are missing from today’s practice.

Zipay also notes that all seven defensemen as well as the two goalies are on the ice.

…not that I wish injury on anyone, but the Rangers seem to play better when someone is out. So maybe it won’t be a bad thing if Wolski has to miss a few games. 😉

…assuming Dubinsky is getting a maintenance day.
