Although no official word came in on Jamie Langenbrunner’s return to the lineup, by the end of practice today Jamie was with his old line mates Zach Parise and Travis Zajac. Coach Brent Sutter made no claim that he was certainly going to play and that the decision would be made tomorrow, but even he admitted that Jamie looked good out on the ice.

"I thought he looked good out there," Sutter said. "We’ll see how he responds and make a decision at game-time tomorrow whether it happens or not."
Bryce Salvador is, however, a definite no for Sunday’s Game 6. Salvador left mid-skate during practice today, and Sutter confirmed that he would not be playing, but would continue to skate in practices. Bryce is very happy, though, for being able to skate just two days after suffering his injury.
Colin Stephenson for the Star Ledger covered the practice.
…he said he did not wear a knee brace when he skated Friday or Saturday, and did not know whether he will have to wear one whenever he returns to the lineup. Then he caught himself.
"Well, I don’t even know if it’s a knee,” he said, causing raucous laughter.
The time of Sunday’s game has been officially set as a 7:30 pm start time. The afternoon game on NBC has gone to the Rangers/Capitals game 6, as anticipated. Steve Cangialosi will be handling the Play-by-Play for the local broadcast on MSG+, as "Doc" will be taking the NBC broadcast.
