Terry Murray said Ryan Smyth was cleared last night to get back on the ice, so that’s why he skated today, a day ahead of schedule. Murray said he would like to see Smyth skate as much as possible but said Smyth wouldn’t be in a full-team practice any time soon. Smyth stayed on the ice this morning as his teammates skated to warm up, and he fed them pucks from the corner.
Matt Greene did not practice. Murray called it a “therapy day” and Greene is expected back tomorrow.
Rob Scuderi practiced again, although Murray stopped short of saying Scuderi would definitely play Tuesday.
