Ryan McDonagh practices in non-contact jersey

Ryan McDonagh is practicing today in the customary yellow non-contact jersey. This is encouraging news and I would wager a guess that McDonagh returns Saturday in Montreal. McDonagh has said that he hopes to get back in before the playoffs start to prepare himself for the increased intensity. So if he’s 100%, I would imagine he asks to get back in the lineup. Then again, Vigneault has more-or-less said he’s going to handle McDonagh with kid gloves. So we’ll see. Either way, I would expect him to return for Game 1.

Chris Kreider, who skated during yesterday’s optional, is not practicing with the team today.
