About Turek: (source:

Turek remains about a week away from returning from a knee injury sustained in the second game of the season versus San Jose on Oct. 11.

Turek is itching to play.

He'll join the club for the two-game road trip but is unlikely to even see action in a backup role.

"It's only a coaches decision now when they think I'm ready to play -- it's not about me any more," said Turek, who's also awaiting medical clearance.

"I talked to them and I feel like a couple more practices and I should be able to play.

"I think a couple more regular practices will help me a lot, especially on 3-on-2s and 2-on-1s and those kinds of situations.

"Only doing practices (like yesterday) and pre-game skates, it's more just shots and powerplay and stuff like that."

That story also said that Kiprusoff is still about a month away.
