Alain Vigneault said that Keith Yandle missed the morning skate due to being under the weather but will play in game 3.

Original Post: Reports from the beat writers are surfacing that Keith Yandle is currently not out there for the morning skate. If you recall, Yandle took a brutal hit from Blake Comeau that appeared to drive his head into the boards in game 2. The hit caused him to miss about 10 minutes.

Matt Hunwick has taken Yandle’s spot on the power play point this AM. Larry Brook’s believes that if Yandle is a no go, either Kevin Klein will be inserted into the lineup or Chris Summers – yikes!

AV will speak shortly and an update will follow.
