Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Matt Gilroy will make his 2013 season debut on the final defensive pair with Anton Stralman tonight vs. the Penguins. This move means that Stu Bickel will be moved up to play on the fourth line and Steve Eminger will again be a healthy scratch. ...welp, had to figure Gilroy would get a shot eventually and with the high scoring Pens in town it doesn't hurt to have a little more offense in the line-up. Especially when your forwards include Rupp, Asham and Bickel. Meanwhile, Ryan Callahan addressed his shoulder injury... ...man, you can just tell how relieved he is by this video. Finally, Gross spoke with Chris Kreider about how his foot injury is progressing... “I couldn’t tell you, I have to talk to the training staff and figure out where I am. Yesterday was light (skating), today was a little harder. We’ll see how it feels tomorrow. It’s a day to day thing. It’s hard to judge on one skate. It’s important to see how it feels tomorrow. It felt OK (today). It wasn’t a full skate. it was a conditioning skate with stops and starts so it’s hard to judge. I really didn’t anticipate skating in a certain fashion. I was told to do something and I did it. I showed up and did what I was told. I can’t give you guys a lot because I have to see how it feels tomorrow.” ...geez, thanks for the update, Chris. lol ...good to see him be able to skate a little harder today. Should be on schedule to return next week. I hope. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
