Prust Sits Out Practice, Could Miss Tomorrow

Per Jesse Spector Brandon sat out of today’s practice on another one of those maintenance days that he has so desperately needed with all his bumps and bruises.  This has happened before and each time he has played, even in games where he likely should have gone, which makes coach John Tortorella saying after practice that he was not sure if Prust would go somewhat surprising.  It might be in the best interest of all involved to have Prust sit a game, but I would not count on that happening as the warrior mentality he has will not allow it.  Tomorrow would be an interesting game for him not to play as well with as dirty as the Islanders can be of late.  The possibility does exist, but I won’t believe it until I see it.

Today’s lines:
Interesting to see Wolski in Prust’s spot instead of Avery, but it would fit to some extent with the limited time Zuccarello got in the third period against San Jose that they are the fourth line at the moment.
I am also expecting Eminger back in the lineup tomorrow for Gilroy, but who knows if that one will happen.
