Brooks Laich (groin) didn't skate in the morning, but he's being listed as a game-time decision for Saturday's match against Phoenix.
However, he hasn't skated for three straight days, so it doesn't look like he'll be available to play. "For me it's frustrating because we want him," coach Adam Oates said. "But clearly I feel more sorry for him because he's a frustrated athlete that doesn't want to be in this position and he's trying to give the team everything. It's tough when guys have the injury bug, it hurts everybody." Laich has been bothered by an ongoing groin issue for the last two years.
