Phaneuf will miss Game 6

Monday, 04.27.2009 / 1:57 PM / 2009 Playoffs Conference Quarterfinals

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

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
