Apparently, as with us, John Tortorella wasn’t actually impressed with Wade Redden’s return from a two-game prucha-ing.
Here’s Tortorella’s assessment of Redden’s first game back, borrowed from our friend Steve Zipay’s blog:
“Reds, I thought he had some good shifts, I thought he had some crappy shifts, so it’s still, as we go through here…we’re frozen here at Christmas, we’re not bringing anybody up, but after Christmas, we have some decisions to make along the way.”
A seventh defenseman, Torts admitted, “could be in our discussions (after Christmas)”.
Boyle’s back from his bad back (and his practice skirmish with Dubinsky) tonight, in place of Christensen, who gets the Festivus prucha.
For those who missed the whole Festivus thread, it’s down below.
I’ll be back with something before the game.
