The last thing the New York Rangers needed was an injury on the blue line, but that’s just what they’ve got.

Rangers defenseman Anton Stralman was hurt in their 3-2 loss to the Washington Capitals on Friday and will miss some time as Blueshirts United shares.

“They don’t think it’s anything serious at this time, but we’ll know more (Saturday),” Vigneault said.

The Rangers didn’t disclose what Stralman’s injury was. To take his place, they called up rookie Conor Allen from AHL Hartford.
