Matt Carle, Erik Condra could play in Game 4
Both defenseman Matt Carle and wing Erik Condra participated fully in Thursday's practice at the Prudential Center, and there's a chance both could return to the lineup for Friday's Game 4 against the Islanders.
Carle, who missed the last two games with an undisclosed injury, was paired with Slater Koekkoek during drills, saying he'll see how he feels Friday. Condra skated on the fourth line with Mike Blunden and Vladislav Namestnikov, saying he's available to play if need be.
"They looked okay in practice," coach Jon Cooper said. "Hopefully we'll get word that everybody's available and that's a good thing."
There was no sign of defenseman Anton Stralman (fractured leg) or captain Steven Stamkos (blood clot) at practice. Right wing J.T Brown worked out on his own after practice, using a full stick for the first time.
