Banged-up Blueline Uncertain for Tomorrow
|Index | Archive|
As things stand right now, any combination of those players, including none or all three, could be available tomorrow, although Laviolette said Gleason was more doubtful than the other two. If none of them can go, that would leave the team with only five defensemen.
"I'm not sure," said Laviolette. "I'm not hiding anything, I'm just not sure."
Pitkanen actually returned to the ice after taking a high hit to the head in last night's game, but stayed off the ice today.
"He got his bell rung," said Laviolette. "He went to the doctors, and they said to just do an off-ice workout today and see how he felt tomorrow."
Justin Williams shed the gold non-contact jersey for full practice and stayed on the ice for a lengthy post-skate with Tom Rowe. Forward lines were the same as they have been, with Williams kind of floating in and out.
