Justin Falk played for the first time since December 29 on Saturday.
That's an awfully long time to be a healthy scratch and Falk did not help his cause when he refused to go to the minors after the Olympic break to get in a conditioning stint. He is unlikely to play in the playoffs unless the Rangers run into the injury bug on the blueline. Apr 13 - 8:09 AM

Mar 29 - 9:57 AM

Defenseman Justin Falk, who has not gotten into the Rangers' lineup since Dec. 29 because coach Alain Vigneault has made him a healthy scratch, rejected a chance to play a few games in the AHL to log some minutes.

Vigneault said Falk declined the offer given that he believes he’s ready to contribute at the NHL level and his wife – who lives with him in Manhattan – is expecting a baby. "When we got back from the break, I sat down with Falker and offered him the possibility to go to Hartford and play a few games since our schedule permitted it – and that’s always player’s option," Vigneault said. "He felt in his situation, and I respect that, he felt he was getting everything he needed here if we needed him to play. You’ve got to respect that. He thinks that – obviously at some point we’re gonna need him – that he’ll be good to go. He’s our seventh defenseman. . .For the number of games he’s played this year, his attitude and his work ethic has been outstanding. He’s never said a word. He’s just done what the coaches have wanted him to. So if a player tells me he’s fine that way, I’ve got no issues with it." Falk will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
