By Todd Kimberley - NHL.com Correspondent

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.
Quote of the Day

This is a great day for me. This is something I've been thinking about for a long time. This is a great opportunity that the St. Louis Blues organization, (owner) Tom Stillman and Doug Armstrong are giving me and trusting me in doing...This is going to be a great challenge for me.
