Clowe stated on Wednesday morning that there is a good chance he will play but did not confirm whether that would happen. The Rangers have not readily announced their roster decisions before game time, which makes an official announcement from the club unlikely.
Clowe sustained an unspecified injury against the Carolina Hurricanes on April 25. He has missed the team's last four games, which includes the final game of the regular season and all three playoff games. He might have sustained a combination of a head injury and a lower-body injury, according to the opinion of Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News.
However, that diagnosis is merely educated speculation, as the Rangers have not officially divulged what the issue is.
Clowe was acquired via trade with the San Jose Sharks prior to the trade deadline. In 12 games with the Rangers, he has compiled eight points (three goals, five assists).
