Jesper Fast has been seen limping in the last couple of games.

The Rangers play four games in six days so do not be surprised if Fast gets to sit out at least one game. "I think the injury is something that he can play through at this time," coach Alain Vigneault said. "What my medical staff is saying, it should heal in due time. So I don’t think it’s anything severe." Fast has 10 goals and 24 points in 64 games this season so his fantasy value is negligible.
