Weight Skated This Morning

NHL Live reported Weight skated this morning. They had Olczyk on too, he said he would probably take the pre-game skate too but he doubts he would play, but you never know. Weight yesterday mentioned it felt like an 8 week injury... added 12:18pm,
Q. Noticing Dougie Weight took the skate this morning. Rule him in or out at this point? COACH LAVIOLETTE: We have got lineup decisions to make. Doug looked good out there this morning. I said he wasn't going to be in Game 6. Was asked about Game 7. We'll make those decisions when the game comes. But he looked good. Q. How has your team reacted emotionally to what is gone on the last couple of games to prepare for Game 7? COACH LAVIOLETTE: Well there hasn't been a lot of time. We flew all day yesterday and got them in here today and had some meetings. Our guys have responded well all year whenever we haven't played a very good game, so it's not about a regular season or a long playoff run. It is about one game and guys feel pretty confident. Q. Do you feel your roster is such -- and maybe this had a little bit to do with the mentality of Cole coming back -- but your roster is such in the way you use your forwards you can afford to have a guy in the lineup that if he can go for a few shifts okay, if not, that's okay too.
