Didn't want to start a new thread, but Gross had a pretty good write-up from practice.
No Chris Drury (concussion), nor any timetable for him to return to the rink to begin the process of trying to get back on the ice. P.A. Parenteau had a head mishap during practice when a shot by Christopher Higgins deflected and hit Parenteau in the right ear. Parenteau was helped off the ice and was shaken for a few minutes but returned within a few minutes. “I’m fine now,” Parenteau said in the dressing room afterwards, with blood pooling in his right ear.

The lines and defensive pairs remained the same from Saturday’s 2-1 win at Ottawa:
Enver Lisin-Vinny Prospal-Marian Gaborik
Parenteau-Higgins-Ales Kotalik
Sean Avery-Artem Anisimov-Ryan Callahan
Donald Brasher-Brian Boyle-Aaron Voros

Marc Staal-Dan Girardi
Wade Redden-Matt Gilroy
Michael Del Zotto-Michal Rozsival

Coach John Tortorella said he was looking to get Redden more time and more opportunities after 1:59 of his 20:31 of ice time came on the power play. Some of that, particularly on the power play, will come at the expense of Marc Staal as Tortorella said he is looking to manage Staal’s game. Neither defenseman has been above average this season.
EDIT- Just came across this as well.

One more on Rangers injury front: Enver Lisin (cracked bone/instep) expects to wear guard on left skate another three weeks
