Callahan, Del Zotto not on ice

Only six skaters and one goaltender (Martin Biron) are on the ice for the Rangers' optional morning skate. Not surprisingly, Ryan Callahan (right foot) and defenseman Michael Del Zotto (hip) are not among them.

Neither player was in the lineup for the team's 4-3 overtime win against the Islanders; it appears both are unlikely for Tuesday's match against the Hurricanes.

Hosting Carolina in the second of a seven-game homestand, the Rangers look to complete a series sweep against the struggling Canes.
