Rangers center at a crossroads
Before Eric Lindrors returns from his latest concussion, he must seriously consider the long-term damages.
After suffering the concussion Wednesday night on a hard but legal check by Capitals defenseman Jason Doig, and fighting Doig on the next shift, Lindros went to Montreal on Thursday to be examined by Johnston.
Lindros will probably feel the urge to come back and try to help the Rangers (19-21-7-4) reach the playoffs for the first time in seven years, but he would first needd medical clearance and must be sure that he isn't in danger of any long-term neurological damage.
