6:57PM: Vigneault said of Kreider, "medically he has been cleared, he is good to go. Not tomorrow but could be any time between Friday and Sunday. He's been cleared by the docs, he skated with us again today, not a lot of full practice time, but he skated today. He's staying behind, he will stay with all our injured guys. I would say that Kreids is getting close and that will be a positive and bring us positive energy coming back into our lineup."
