Chris Neil, who injured his ankle against the New York Rangers on Nov. 9, skated on his own for 20-30 minutes on Thursday. According to MacLean, there will be no timetable for his return until he practices with the team.
According to Carolina team writer Michael Smith, Jay Harrison, who sustained an upper body injury against Montreal on Wednesday, did not travel with the team. Joni Pitkanen, who injured his lower body against the Rangers on Nov. 11, is listed as probable. He will skate today and then decide if he is ready to go. If Pitkanen returns, expect him to replace Derek Joslin in the lineup.
I don't think today was my most solid game that I've had, some rebounds here and there. I know there's a lot of work to do, not every game is going to go as good as these last few. I've just got to make sure I keep working and keep trying to get better.
