Condolences out to Matt Greene, who, according to Terry Murray, recently lost a good friend and is attending a funeral in Minnesota this week. Murray said Greene, who is recovering from July shoulder surgery and a recent bout with “lace bite,” is scheduled to be back in town tomorrow and could be back on the ice for Sunday’s practice. Murray said Greene is “coming along real good” in terms of the shoulder. Greene had been a strong participant in non-contact drills this month before suffering the discomfort with his feet.
The news isn’t as good for Scott Parse, who has a sore groin. Parse initially suffered the injury on Sept. 22, then felt some type of discomfort when he attempted to skate on Oct. 6 and has not been back on the ice since.
MURRAY: “I don’t have any news, really, on Parse. He still has an issue, and he’s trying to work through it, trying to get some results, trying to come to a solution for this. That’s just going to take a little more time. … It’s a concern now. So we’ll see how it goes in the next week. He did have a doctor’s appointment. The advice from the doctor was, `Let’s take a week of rest and then we’ll see where it is after that.”’
