RANGERS: The struggling New York Rangers will be without defenseman Jacob Trouba for the next 4 to 6 weeks because of a broken thumb.

That’s a significant blow to an underachieving team with playoff aspirations that has lost four in a row.

MVP finalist Artemi Panarin is expected to to return Thursday against Philadelphia after missing the past two games with a lower-body injury. Panarin, who was injured last week in a game against Boston, leads the team with five goals, 10 assists and 15 points.

The Rangers also expect defenseman K’Andre Miller to play after sitting out a loss Tuesday night to New Jersey with an upper-body injury. Jack Johnson was recently cleared to practice and isn’t ready to play yet.
