Cally "Feeling Better" After Surgery

“ It's getting there, slowly but surely (my shoulder) is feeling better. The first week (after surgery) was tough. ”
- Ryan Callahan
“ I hurt it in that fight with (Philadelphia's Max) Talbot (on January 29th). I mean everybody's playing with injuries, and it's just about going out there no matter what and doing what you have to do, not letting (the injury) get in your way. ”
- Ryan Callahan
“ It's part of it, there are no excuses. If you can get out on the ice and play, then no excuses. But fortunately it's feeling better now (after the surgery). ”
- Ryan Callahan

Rangers captain Ryan Callahan spoke with BlueshirtsUnited.com's Jim Cerny on Thursday and said that his surgically-repaired left shoulder is "feeling better", though the first week after his surgery "was tough". Callahan needed to have a torn labrum repaired in that left shoulder, an injury originally suffered in a fight with Flyers forward Max Talbot on January 29th at Madison Square Garden. Callahan missed the next three games then appeared in the next 39 to close out the regular season, and all 12 in the playoffs, despite the pain he was in and the physical brand of hockey he plays.
