Rupp, Wolski placed on IR

Both Mike Rupp (knee) and Wojtek Wolski (groin) have been placed on injured reserve.

Rupp, who will miss his fifth straight game, will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery next week. Wolski, sidelined for six games this season with a recurring groin strain, underwent an MRI Saturday and will see abdominal/groin specialist Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia Monday.

When asked about a timetable for both players, coach John Tortorella said:

"No idea."
