Before we get to the quotes, here’s the news (as I Tweeted earlier; imagine, I’m Tweeting now?):
Vinny Prospal will be shut down for a couple of weeks to rest his right knee, which continues to swell when he skates. After exams today, team doctors met with Prospal and John Tortorella following tonight’s game, and the decision was to keep him off skates for a couple of weeks, then see how the knee reacts when he skates. Tortorella said they didn’t even discuss what’s next if the knee doesn’t react well after the two-week break.
Back with an updated version from Tortorella’s press conference shortly.
