Rangers D Staal expects to return Tuesday

The SportsXchange

New York Rangers defenseman Marc Staal said after Monday's practice that he is ready to return after missing three weeks because of a concussion.

The Rangers visit the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.

Staal was injured during the Rangers' Dec. 7 game against the New Jersey Devils when he took a hit from Devils forward Reid Boucher.

Staal has two goals and one assist in 30 games this season.

Also, defenseman Anton Stralman (wrist) is questionable for Tuesday's game. He missed Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Lightning.
