Six of the seven Rangers who went to Sochi for the Olympics will compete in Friday’s semifinals, alive in the competition for the gold medal.

The seventh, Mats Zuccarello, is on his way back to New York with a non-displaced fracture of the left hand that, preliminarily at least, is expected to sideline the club’s leading scorer for a week-to-10 days after the Blueshirts’ resume their schedule Feb. 27 with the first of three games in four nights, six in 11 and nine matches in 16 nights.

Zuccarello, who will be examined upon arriving in New York on Thursday afternoon by hand specialist Dr. Martin Posner, is believed to have sustained the injury when hit by a shot during Norway’s 3-1 loss to Austria on Sunday. A more definitive time frame regarding Zuccarello’s absence will be known after the exam.

The 26-year-old did not play in his country’s 4-0 qualification game loss to Russia on Tuesday. Zuccarello, who leads the Blueshirts with 43 points and is tied for second with 15 goals, three fewer than Rick Nash, had eight points (2 goals, 6 assists) in the last six games and 10 points (4 goals, 6 assists) in the last 11 matches before the break.
