Following practice on Sunday, Dallas Eakins gave an update on the status of Ryan Jones and Philip Larsen. Neither player skated today -- nor did Mark Arcobello (rib injury).
Jones collided with Andrew Ference during morning skate yesterday and had to be helped off. Eakins said that the word was, Jones was doing better today.
“I haven’t seen him but somebody told me that he was looking better this morning. But I haven’t even seen him,” said Eakins, adding that he hasn't been alerted that it's at all serious.
“If there’s a major concern with the player, TD will be in my office right away so I didn’t see him."
Philip Larsen missed the game yesterday as well as morning skate and didn't practice today due to illness.
"Larsen’s got whatever bug’s going around the city. I guess it isn’t a pretty one."
