CALGARY -- Mike Keenan has just said Dion Phaneuf will not play tonight in Game 6, adding that he is day-to-day.
Anders Eriksson, who spent the 2008-09 regular season in AHL Quad Cities, and played 22:44 in Game 1 of this series, is expected to draw in.
Phaneuf left Game 5 in Chicago on Saturday night after a helmet-on-helmet collision with Chicago's Troy Brouwer in the third period. Phaneuf did not return, and did not take the morning skate here today.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
