  • Recent ATO's Scott Harrington and Olli Maatta practiced with the main roster yesterday. Harington didn't take the warmup and won't play tonight. Maatta did take the warmup skate and appears to be making his pro debut
  • Bobby Farnham also skated in yesterday's practice at Coal Street in full-capacity. Farnham hasn't returned since a hit behind the net in Game Five of the 2nd round.
  • Dylan Reese and Jayson Megna are still labeled "day-to-day" and didn't practice yesterday. They are both still out of the lineup.
