Ryan Suter's status from a lower-body will be determined by the team's doctors.

"Suts is stubborn. He's tough and stubborn," GM Chuck Fletcher said. "He's indicated that he'd like to play, but ultimately we need [head medical trainer] John Worley and our doctors to make that decision. After [Thursday's] game we have a couple of days before we play again Sunday. So you just want to be smart. If he's able to play and there's no risk of him endangering himself, then he can play." Suter had to leave Tuesday's game due to the ailment, but he intends to play on Thursday night. We'll keep you posted.
