New York Rangers center Mika Zibanejad will miss his third straight game when the team hosts the Ottawa Senators on Monday night.
Rangers head coach David Quinn confirmed that his No. 1 center would not play on Monday night against the Ottawa Senators at the Garden.
Zibanejad will miss his third consecutive game as a result of a hard hit he suffered in a loss against the Boston Bruins last week. The upper-body injury is not head-related but is said to be an issue with his neck.
