First, I’ve been told there may not be any update on Marc Staal’s condition coming today, as we anticipated.
Second, several sites have reported Sean Avery’s conversation with ESPNNY, saying he doubts he will be recalled, that it’s kind of like hoping to win the lottery.
The New York Daily News blog had this quote from John Tortorella in reaction to that:
“No, I’m so busy worrying about this team. This is the first time I’ve heard about it,” Tortorella said. “We go about our business here, and I know that’s a story I’m sure that’s going to be talked about a lot, because Sean was here and very well-liked, but again I’m coaching this hockey club here. Talk to Kenny (Whale coach Ken Gernander). I don’t know what’s going on down there. So I can’t comment on it.”
We never did give you the post-game notes from last night’s game, which spilled into this morning. So here they are, courtesy of the NYR:
