Girardi assisted on both of the team's goals and skated a game-high 26:06 in Monday's Game 4 win over the Penguins.

Girardi took a puck to the face toward the end of Game 1 but has shown no ill effects since then as he skated for over 20 minutes in Game 2 and blew past his season average of 22:42 worth of ice time in Monday's win. The blueliner generally isn't much of a factor on the scoresheet, but he's now tallied three points in the playoffs to go along with a pair of points down the stretch run of the regulation season.

Girardi (face) skated 20:20 in Saturday's Game 2 loss to the Penguins, finishing the night with five hits and three blocked shots.

Girardi was forced to leave Thursday's Game 1 win after taking a puck to the face, but he never seemed at much risk of missing Game 2 after practicing Friday. Though he might still be experiencing some residual pain, Girardi won't be at risk of missing any further first-round action.

Girardi (face) took part in practice Friday, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.

Girardi took a puck to the jaw Thursday and departed the game. However, he appears to have avoided a major injury, as he was on the ice Friday without any extra protection. Expect him to play in Game 2 on Saturday as the Rangers look to go up 2-0 on Pittsburgh.

Girardi took a puck to the face and departed Thursday's Game 1 against Pittsburgh in the third period.

It looked like the puck got Girardi in the jaw, and he may have taken a high stick as well. It's unclear how serious the injury is, but it appeared initially that Girardi avoided anything major. We'll look for an update after the game if he's unable to return.

Girardi scored a goal in Monday's 4-3 overtime victory.

Look out, the mostly quiet Girardi has a goal and an assist in his last two contests. The veteran blue liner has now managed to notch seven 20-point campaigns in his nine year career. With Girardi's specialty being blocked shots (three on Monday) and a few rare cameos on the team's second power play unit we're not really recommending this will continue, but it's nice to see for more unique fantasy format owners.

Girardi (arm) will play Saturday against the Bruins, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Girardi was forced out the Rangers' last game on Thursday against the Senators after suffering a gash to his arm when he was struck by a puck. He required stitches to patch up the wound, but it sounds as though it won't limit him at all in Saturday's game. He'll skate next to Ryan McDonagh on the Rangers' top defensive pairing.

Girardi suffered a "gash" on his arm after getting hit by the puck in Thursday's game and will require stitches.

Girardi's injury doesn't appear to be serious, as it's just a large cut. The Rangers next game comes Saturday against the Bruins, but he seems probable for the game at this point. The team should provide an update on his status at some point before the game, confirming whether or not he will play.

Girardi potted his third goal of the season in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Red Wings.

Girardi isn't much of an offensive producer, but was able to punch home a loose puck in the crease to tie the game at one Wednesday. The Rangers outplayed the Red Wings most of the night, but ultimately fell in overtime on Marek Zidlicky's first goal as a Red Wing.

Girardi registered on the scoresheet for the third consecutive game Thursday, notching two assists in a shootout loss to Vancouver.A full quarter of his 16 points on the year have come over these last three games, but there's no sense in relying on consistent offensive productivity from Girardi, who's locked into the role of a defensively oriented defenseman who'll chip in 20-something points on an annual basis.

Girardi had an assist in Monday's 6-5 win over the Islanders.The 30-year-old Girardi also registered nearly three minutes of penalty-kill time and two shots on goal in the back-and-forth shootout. That's assists in consecutive games for the Girardi. If the team continues their offensive assault (22 goals in their last four games) of the league, it's plausible to believe the first-pair defenseman will continue to produce more consistently, just don't count on it. Girardi has 14 points through 55 games played.
