8:15PM: McQuaid will not return to tonight’s game for precautionary reasons.
He played 5:22 in the first, took a penalty, had two hits and one blocked shot.
Adam Rotter: I’m more surprised about McQuaid than the other two as I expected Zuccarello and Hayes to play tonight. There is always a risk of injury but it’s a greater risk with McQuaid and how he defends by blocking shots and being physical. There is still a good amount of time until the players hit the ice for warmups around 6:30PM so something could very well change by then and keep one, two or all three players out.
