My story in the paper and on newsday. com today discusses the absence of No. 24 for 10 days to two weeks with that partially dislocated shoulder. Also a good chart on his stats against the teams the Blueshirts will be facing in the next two weeks.

Perhaps we will speak to him this morning at the skate at 10:30 or at MSG tonight. Have feeling he'll want to be with the club.

At any rate, will be able to venture guesses on d-pairs and goaltender (gotta bet it's Lundqvist) tonight against Crosby & Co.)  No. 30 was lifted after 29:11 in that 6-3 pasting on Jan. 20...

See you shortly. Snappy new laptop and all after I drove the old hard drive to an untimely end.
