Coach Eakins gave an update on the status of Philip Larsen and Corey Potter. Both defencemen skated with the team on Monday.

"I don’t know if Larsen’s ready yet. He was out there, but I don’t think he’s been cleared. Potter’s practiced hard, he’s played hard. We’re looking to get him back in the lineup."

Ales Hemsky and Nail Yakupov did not skate with the team but did head out on the ice after practice.

“They were just going on the ice for a twirl," said Eakins. "Hemsky’s got one of those really deep bone bruises. We haven’t found any fractures or anything, but those deep bone bruises can be just as nasty sometimes.

"Yak just continues on with the protocol that I about halfway understand."
