08:28 AM ET 11.23 | Though slowly, more good news comes for Marc Staal. The three Rangers on injured reserve, including [Staal], traveled with the team to Florida as the Blueshirts (10-4-3) visit the Panthers (11-6-3) Wednesday night looking to rebound from Saturday's 4-0 loss in Montreal. The team had no updates on the statuses of Staal and wingers Mike Rupp and Wojtek Wolski, but this is the first trip that Staal has made with the team this season. Staal has sat out every game due to complications from a concussion he sustained Feb. 22 on a hit from his brother, Eric, the Carolina Hurricanes captain. Staal was cleared by a specialist only Thursday to begin "light physcial activity."

Don't rush it, wait until your ready and may your first game back be against the Isles.

And, just in time for Thanksgiving. Maybe there will be peace at the Staal house.

The Isles may want to play posts instead of having (what some would call) a goalie between the pipes...that was most definitely not NHL calibre goaltending.

For hitting Sid? I thought mandatory sentencing was in place for that ;)

Oops, lost the thread there. I posted with a Staal hitting another Staal in mind. My bad.
