…wonder if Torts agrees with Prust’s assessment of his injury.

Jim Cerny wonders if Torts will dress seven defensemen to guard against Girardi not making it through the game. While, Steve Zipay is saying Girardi may be out, a gametime decision or 7th defenseman.

Michael Del Zotto is also on the ice, while Evgeny Grachev will again wear #91.
Girardi has two black eyes from the broken nose he received in his fight with Ladd on Saturday night and both Vinny Prospal and Ryan Callahan are skating in non-contact jerseys.
@thenyrangers says that Dan Girardi is on the ice for the morning skate, while Brandon Prust is not.
Jesse Spector reports that Derek Stepan has a cut under his eye.
…not sure if this means anything other than Girardi needs to test his injury, while Prust needs to rest his. Won’t know full lineup until much later. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
