Callahan Not At Practice (UPDATE: Lundqvist Shaken Up)November 3, 2010, by
As per Andrew Gross, Ryan Callahan was not at practice today, nursing his injured right ankle, which needed stitches after blocking a shot in the second period on Monday’s 3-2 win over Chicago. Injuries are going to happen when the Rangers block shots at the pace they do. Todd White replaced Callahan on the RW with Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov. The other three lines remained the same at practice, and all seven defensemen were skating.
With White taking Callahan’s spot in practice, it likely means that White will not dress for tomorrow’s game against Philadelphia. Considering the number of enforcers the Flyers have, it is probable that Derek Boogaard will be dressed to balance the physicality during the game.
Update 11:40pm: As per Larry Brooks, goalie Henrik Lundqvist took a Brian Boyle slapshot offf his jaw/neck and was immediately left the ice. It doesn’t appear to be serious, shots up high like that are generally a shock to the system. Looks like Boyle will be buying Hank some dinner tonight after that.
