Friday Practice Update
I've have to be brief. I've got an online chat starting in three minutes.
*Clark skated today and is getting "close" to returning. The captain won't play tomorrow against the Lightning, but next Thursday in Florida is looking like a possibility.
*Semin did not skate. So, obviously, he won't be playing tomorrow. It's gotten to the point that when you ask when he might play again, all you get is shoulder shrugs. That's concerning.
*Hanlon said Backstrom has seen his last game on the wing. Last night was his third game as a full-time center, and apparently he's proved to the coaching staff that he's ready to play his natural position on a regular basis in the NHL.
Update:Lightning defenseman Dan Boyle had more surgery today. From the Bolts:
Lightning defenseman Dan Boyle underwent a second surgery today to treat the left wrist injuries he sustained when a skate fell from his locker, lacerating his thumb tendons, on September 23. Boyle experienced a setback when the tendons failed to heal properly after the initial surgery performed in Tampa following the incident.
Talk about terrible luck. Got to feel sorry for him.
