Erik Boland: Has an update on Bill Guerin for Thursday's game against Pittsburgh who will wear a protective visor while Ted Nolan talks about the captain's value to the club.

"Something fluky like this is tough because other than that you feel great," Guerin said. "It's not like a wrist or arm or a leg, or something like that where you know you can't skate. Physically you feel fine, it's just this fluke incident that you're missing time for."

"It could have been much worse."

"Just his presence," Nolan said. "His mannerisms, the way he talks to his teammates before the game, the way he gets ready on the bench, the respect factor he has. All the intangibles. He's one of those guys you can get by without for a game or two but more than that, it's tough. We're glad he's back."
