Lineup against Detroit
Posted Sep 24, 2007 by Erik Erlendsson
Updated Sep 24, 2007 at 12:25 PM
Here is the lineup for tonight’s home preseason finale against Detroit.
Vinny Prospal-Brad Richards-Marty St. Louis
Jan Hlavac-Andreas Karlsson-Jason Ward
Nick Tarnasky-Craig MacDonald-Andre Roy
Mathieu Darche-Kyle Wanvig
Filip Kuba-Shane O’Brien
Paul Ranger-Brad Lukowich
Bryce Lampman-Doug Janik
Chris Gratton still out with his eye injury. Saw him walking around the locker room area and his eye looks better, but not sure about how much his vision has cleared up.
Vinny Lecavalier skated today, but is being held out for precautionary reasons.
Ryan Craig did not skate and arrived at the rink holding an MRI exam folder in his hand. No further update was given and he is still listed as day-to-day with back spams.
Michel Ouellet took part in practice today but will not play. John Tortorella hopes to have him in the lineup in one of the two final games either at Detroit Thursday or at Dallas Friday.
Dan Boyle was not at the rink, although he is expected to be on the ice in the next two days (minus a stick, of course). Tortorella said he fully believes Boyle will be back and ready to play by four weeks at the latest. He mentioned that the issue with Boyle is one certain motion when rotating the stick. He is able to hold a stick, but he won’t for the time being.
Tortorella also expressed to the media today that he won’t be talking about injuries to us any more after today (assuming no more pop up) because he doesn’t want the players using them as an excuse. He spoke at length at the opportunities other players will have to step up and fill some of the void left with Boyle’s absence - both the established players such as Shane O’Brien, Filip Kuba and Brad Lukowich, but also the Bryce Lampmans, Doug Janiks and Matt Smabys (even Mike Lundin).
