Defenseman Marc Staal, who missed his 10th game Sunday night since suffering a concussion Dec. 7, did not rule out returning to the lineup Tuesday at Florida — though Friday at Pittsburgh may be more likely.

Staal participated in the morning skate to mark the second straight day he has practiced with the Rangers.

"I’ll practice again [today] and see how I feel," Staal said. "It’s a five o’clock game [Tuesday], so I don’t know. I’ve thought about it. I’ve got to see how everything goes. It’s been a good week and a half."

The Rangers won’t have a morning skate Tuesday because of the late-afternoon faceoff.
