Scuderi's continued absence

Here’s what Terry Murray said this morning, in regard to Rob Scuderi missing his seventh consecutive game…

MURRAY: “If a player is not coming out, at the end of the day after a hard practice, and saying, `Yeah, I feel 100 percent, and I did everything I’m going to have to do in a game, without any kind of pain or heistancy in my game,’ then I’m ready to go. But I want to make sure on this one. I talked to him today on the ice. The last thing I want is for him to get in and play a game or two and then have to take another step back for another week or two. So, when he’s in, I want him to be in.”
