In tonight's game between the Rangers and Flames, the 29-year-old New York defenseman caught himself in a difficult situation near Calgary's bench.

After suffering a shoulder injury earlier this season, Pettelier has only played three games while garnering only one assist. Now, while potentially facing more time off-ice for recovery, the thread for Pettelier to help lift his team out of the middle of the league is running thin.
