Ryane Clowe wasn’t making any bold predictions or guarantees.

The rugged left-winger wasn’t ruling anything out, either.

That could prove to be good news for the New York Rangers, who were missing four key players as they dropped the series opener to the Washington Capitals by a 3-1 count at Verizon Center Thursday.

“I guess it’s just kind of a progression here now. I’m not going to rule out tomorrow,” said Clowe, who had three goals and eight points in 12 games with the Rangers after he was acquired from the San Jose Sharks. “It’s the time of the year, the hockey I look forward to the most. It was hard to watch last night. We’ll see.”
