Ray Emery had a second, hard practice and faced a lot of shots. He says he might be back in net next week ahead of his scheduled Jan. 20 return from abdominal surgery.
“I feel good,” he said. “I’ve skated four or five times now. I’ve got to get my feet back under me. Since I started I felt strong but have been kinda tentative. I don’t want to stretch out too far. Things are kinda still tight in there [abdomen/groin]. But I think it’s more trusting myself to do certain things. I think it’s healed. I need to get confidence in there again,”
Emery said he plans to practice every day from here on.
