Ryane Clowe has seemed close to returning to the Rangers’ lineup a couple of times already in the playoffs, but he never did suit up.

Tonight, though?

Tonight, it could happen.

Clowe — who’s believed to have been dealing with a concussion, in addition to a possible leg injurytold reporters this morning there’s a good chance he’ll play Game 4 of the Rangers’ first-round series with the Washington Capitals at Madison Square Garden.

The big 30-year-old forward had three goals and five assists in 12 games after being traded from San Jose to New York prior to the deadline.

Washington leads the series, 2-1.

    His size & nastiness are needed in the lineup badly.

    Every bit helps, but I have no confidence that this team can win in Washington. That’s a house of horrors for them.
