from Katie Strang of ESPN New York,
“Today I felt fully confident going on the ice and taking some hits. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that that wasn’t the right thing to do with the way I was feeling,” Staal said.
Staal was encouraged that, after being jostled by teammates, he felt fine.
“I took a few bumps, my head bounced off the glass a couple times, things like that, not necessarily very hard,” Staal said. “You wait to see how you feel after that. I wasn’t planning on laying on the ice, out cold, but it was good just to start pushing guys and getting that type of conditioning into your body. “
Staal’s overall conditioning remains as the last barrier to his return.
