Practice Notes: Cally Maintenance Day; Boyle Out; Game 7 Thoughts; Del Zotto on Neil Comment

Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports that Ryan Callahan (finger) was given a maintenance day today.

John Scott filled in for him on line rushes.

…assuming unless Callahan’s dead, he’ll be in the line-up tomorrow night.

Meanwhile, Steve Zipay at Newsday notes Brian Boyle (concussion) said he felt “ok” after leaving the training room this morning. Boyle is expected to miss Game 7.

…Rangers would be smart to sit him out Game 7. Great hear him say he is ok.

Henrik Lundqvist said this after practice about tomorrow’s Game 7 (via Rangers Twitter)…

“There would be no better feeling than to win a Game 7 in front of our fans.”

Brad Richards on Game 7 (via Dan Rosen)…

“It’s a great day. It’s a great day in your life to wake up and know that everybody is watching. It’s a do-or-die. You’re going to have those anxious moments. I hope we all do. if you don’t, you probably shouldn’t be playing.”

Finally, Michael Del Zotto responds to Chris Neil’s threat against him (via ESPN NY)…

“I don’t even know what he said. I’m just worried about tomorrow’s game.”

…you’re irrelevant out here Neil.
