Dion Phaneuf not taking part in practice; missed Wednesday morning skate for "maintenance"— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) March 7, 2014
Phaneuf wasn't on the ice yesterday & Tues was day off for team RT @felixpotvin did he skate at the optional yesterday?— Mark Masters (@markhmasters) March 7, 2014
Carlyle said this of Phaneuf earlier: "...we're going to rest people, we're going to make sure people are healed" and available to play.— Jonas Siegel (@jonasTSN1050) March 7, 2014
Dion Phaneuf played 22:32 on Wednesday night against the Rangers, but he's not practicing right now. The Leafs have played four games since the Olympic break so it's hard to think Dion Phaneuf needs a ton of rest and isn't injured.
If Phaneuf misses time or isn't effective because of an injury the playoff push could get tight for the Leafs.
