Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that John Tortorella expects Tim Erixon to be sent back to the CT Whale after Saturday night's game in Phoenix.Erixon was summoned for the two game road trip in case Steve Eminger wasn't able to play do to an arm injury he sustained while blocking a shot Tuesday night....assuming this makes it less likely that Erixon will get in the line-up against the Coyotes tomorrow night, but with the way the team has played the last two games maybe Torts will be looking to mix it up a bit.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
