Eric Engels: Montreal Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher (concussion) was on the ice yesterday for about 25-30 minutes. It was his first time back on the ice since he suffered the concussion. The earliest return is tomorrow.
Paul Skrbina: Nashville Predators forward Matt Duchene and defenseman Dante Fabbro missed yesterday’s game – their second consecutive missed game.
Tampa Bay Lightning: The Lightning officially list defenseman Ryan McDonagh out with an upper-body injury.
- Joe Smith: McDonagh took a high hit from Brady Tkachuk and then an elbow to the head from Colin White. Coach Jon Cooper wouldn’t say if a concussion has been ruled out.
Not sure what the injury was for Ryan McDonagh, but he took a high hit from Tkachuk, plus an inadvertent elbow to the head from White. Asked Jon Cooper if a concussion was ruled out, but he didn’t elaborate on status other than McDonagh is “doubtful” for Sunday’s game in Carolina pic.twitter.com/dvDKe2Mijh

Jonas Siegel: Toronto Maple Leafs forwards Andreas Johnsson (leg) and Trevor Moore (concussion) both took part in their first full practice since their injuries. Both were in no-contact jerseys.
Jesse Granger: Multiple sources have said that that the injury to Vegas Golden Knights forward Cody Glass is only a bone bruise. It doesn’t look like surgery will be required.
He suffered a similar injury last but to the opposite knee.
