New York Rangers’ Ryan Lindgren continues to “inspire” post-season

Tarrytown – Ryan Lindgren’s face looked swollen and there were bruises on his nose and under his left eye, not to mention the fact that he’s been dealing with a lower body injury that has flared up repeatedly in recent weeks.

So, how’s New York Rangers coach Jim Ramsey’s No. 1 patient doing?

“I feel good,” said Lindgren, without swinging after Tuesday’s 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes in Game Four of the second-round series.

To be fair, he could have had his face covered in blood and his leg cut in two and he would probably have said the same.

If there is no resignation in these Rangers, then the 24-year-old is the embodiment of that mantra.

“That’s how it’s built,” Chris Kreider said earlier this month. “I don’t think we expected anything less, but at the same time, I think the right word is inspiring. He’s a warrior. He’s the kind of person you want to be in a hole with you. It was great to have him back in the squad and to see him play the way he did. He’s a huge part of This team – on the ice and in the locker room.”
