Ray Emery has a lower-body injury and won't suit up in Friday's game against Nashville.

He is listed as day-to-day and even though he won't be uniform, coach Joel Quenneville hopes Emery will get back on the ice Friday. He didn't take part in Wednesday's optional skate and was absent from Thursday's practice. It doesn't sound like the ailment is serious though. "At this time, we want to make sure we're smart about rest," Quenneville said. "Maybe (the injuries are) small enough that they could become bigger. We have that luxury that they're more preventive than anything. Corey [Crawford] has been going well, as Ray has, so it's been a fortunate situation with the goaltending decision this year."
