07:55 AM ET 05.11 | Marc Staal doesn't know if or when he'll be able to play again this spring, but the alternate captain said he made the decision to pull himself from the Rangers' Game 4 lineup against the Caps on Wednesday because of issues with his vision that day and not because of anything he experienced in his Game 3 return on Monday. "I don't want to go into detail about what happened," Staal -- who also missed last night's 2-1 overtime defeat in Game 5 -- said after participating in yesterday's optional morning skate. "It's hard to explain and I don't really want to try to and have it be misunderstood." But it didn't go particularly well [at Wednesday's morning skate] and as the day went on I couldn't see myself getting into game situations." Staal would not speculate about the possibility of playing again in this series that the Rangers trail 3-2 heading into tomorrow's Game 6 at the Garden. Game 7 would be played in Washington on Monday night if necessary.

Do the right thing. Call it a season and re-evaluate in the fall. This game is not worth the eyesight of a young man

Here, we call it common sense.

If there was any common sense there the ACC would have been empty for the past decade.

Vision problems are scary so agree with this.

Agreed. Nothing to gain and everything to lose if he comes back too soon.
