Greenburgh, NY, United States (4E Sports) - New York Rangers captain and defenseman Ryan McDonagh missed practice Thursday ahead of their Game 7 showdown against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Eastern Conference Final.

McDonagh also missed their morning skate Tuesday before winning Game 6, 7-3.

In the first period of Game 6, the 25-year-old was checked hard from behind by Lightning captain Steven Stamkos but he still finished the game.

"Everybody's beat up so I'm just trying to be as prepared as I can," McDonagh said.

The Rangers captain has not missed a game in the 2015 playoffs and since returning from shoulder injury last November 28.

McDonagh has scored nine points (three goals, six assists) in 18 playoff games this season.

Meanwhile, Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said he is not worried regarding McDonagh's availability for Game 7.
