10:20 PM: Gerard Gallant said after the game (MSG):
- Anything on Panarin and Copp, “Not much, should be fine. Being cautious.”
- Is this the same issue for Copp, “I haven’t even talked to them yet. They told me between periods, ‘do you want them back, need them back?’ and I said ‘no, I need them back next week.”
- So Copp and Panarin could have returned if needed, “That is what they told me, but I’m on the cautious side. If it was next week, one of those games, both of them would have been back. Tomorrow they might wake up and not feel as good, but….”
9:12PM: Andrew Copp and Artemi Panarin will not return to tonight’s game against Carolina.
Copp has a lower-body injury and Panarin has an upper-body injury. (MSG)
