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.
It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
