NEW YORK — The Senators were a little shorthanded for practice Wednesday at Chelsea Piers.
Centre Jason Spezza, defenceman Erik Karlsson and winger Marek Svatos weren’t on the ice for the 45-minute skate, but all three should be ready to play against the New York Rangers Thursday.
Goalie Craig Anderson took part in the skate and should also be ready to take on Henrik Lundqvist.
“It’s been a couple of good days of practice. I’m just trying to get back into it and get the timing back,” said Anderson. “I’m just trying to test everything out and make sure I feel pretty good.”
Coach Cory Clouston said a decision will be made on winger Milan Michalek, who is trying to come back from a broken foot that has kept him out a month, Thursday morning after the skate.
