Anisimov injured in loss

Already without captain Ryan Callahan and defenseman Michael Del Zotto, the Rangers lost another top-six forward in Thursday's game against the Penguins as Artem Anisimov was forced from the game with an unspecified injury.

The 23-year-old forward, who has 14 goals and 19 assists for the Rangers this season, appeared to suffer an upper-body injury in the second period of the team's 5-2 loss to Pittsburgh and did not return.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist also missed his second straight game with the flu.
