Purcell in, Smyth…delayed

Ryan Smyth did not make it back from Calgary as scheduled — certainly not a surprise, because of the weather — but is now scheduled to get in at 11:30 a.m. and play tonight.

Terry Murray isn’t 100 percent confident, though, because he didn’t announce tonight’s scratched forward. Teddy Purcell will go back into the lineup, as will Matt Greene, in place of Randy Jones.

More notes and quotes from the morning skate to come…
