It’s a bit of a slow day today. So here are some notes (in bullet point format) from practice, courtesy of Rick Carpiniello: Brandon Dubinsky is still out, and has been spotted with a boot on his right leg and crutches. Mats Zuccarello didn’t skate, but that’s not all that unexpected. He was likely working off the ice to rehab that wrist. Lines at practice saw Ryan Callahan skating with Ruslan Fedotenko and Brian Boyle. Artem Anisimov was moved in Cally’s spot with Chris Kreider and Derek Stepan. Brandon Prust was with Mike Rupp and John Mitchell. The top line stayed the same. It is troubling to see that Dubinsky is still on crutches. Makes you wonder how long he is going to be out. At first I thought this could be connected to his stress fracture from last season, but that was on his left leg, not his right. So much for my theory. I still think Dubi plays again before this round is over. It’s the playoffs, he will do anything to get in the lineup.
