An injury-addled Rangers club appears to be inching its way back to health, as Wednesday saw three of its key injured players practicing with the team.

Rick Nash, Ryan McDonagh and Michael Del Zotto all skated Wednesday, following the team's 4-3 loss to Winnipeg on Tuesday night.

Losers in their last four games, the Rangers could certainly use a boost by returning defensemen McDonagh and Del Zotto to their back end and adding Nash back into the lineup.

We should know more about each player's status for Thursday's match against Tampa soon, although call-up forward Brandon Mashinter has been sent back down to the AHL's Connecticut Whale -- a good sign that at least one of those three is ready to play.
