Just when you thought it was safe to jump into the water, New York Rangers’ forward J.T. Miller blocked a Mark Streit slap shot.

International competition is great, especially when the New York Rangers have a few players representing the Broadway Blue.

While that’s all well and good, J.T. Miller is learning that with high reward comes high risk.

Miller returned after making a trip to the locker room, but only time will tell if the shot will hamper the Rangers’ forward moving forward.

Miller’s possible injury comes only days after Henrik Lundqvist suffered a shot to the ribs. But as always, the King of New York shrugged off the noise. He told Dan Rosen of

“It didn’t feel too good when it happened, but I checked it right after practice and it’s nothing serious,” Lundqvist said. “I’m probably going to feel some pain for a while, but it’s nothing that really bothers me the way I move. Yeah, I feel it, but it doesn’t bother me when reaching for pucks or anything. That’s the good part.”

Maybe the Rangers should consider bubble-wrap?
