Stralman left Tuesday's Game 3 against Boston after taking a big second-period hit.He appeared shaken up after taking a smashing from Milan Lucic and didn't come out for the third period. No word on what the injury is yet, but it's bad news for the Rangers if it's anything serious, as Stralman's been a steady presence on their blue line.
Anton Stralman will return to Madison Square Garden after signing a two-year, $3.4 million contract as a restriced free agent this past offseason. The 26-year-old Swedish blueliner took a step back in 2011-12 (2 goals, 16 assists) after two solid seasons with Columbus, but he should be able to improve upon those totals in 2012-13 as he will likely be paired with the improving Michael Del Zotto. Stralman won't be someone targeted by fantasy owners in drafts this fall, and rightly so, but he's a player worth keeping an eye on if he can revert to his 2009-10 form that saw him notch 34 points.
