Just want to get this out there first, in case they didn’t cover it on the post-game show. Drury has been cleared to return and wanted to play tonight. He will play in Pitt Wednesday.
“It’s not going to be the kids,” John Tortorella said. “I’ll tell you that right now. None of the kids are coming out. I’m not concerned (about how Drury fits in). That was a question when Gabby came back in and I think he’s being more engaged in the style we’re trying to play … I don’t think it’s going to effect us. This is our captain coming back in, Chris Drury. Everybody wants him back in. Someone’s going to have to suffer, someone’s going to have to sit out. It’s not going to be a kid, though.”
Obviously, Todd White will be the first to come out. Then when Derek Boogaard comes back, it’ll be another veteran. And then another when Vinny Prospal comes back. Interesting.
