Illy Bryzgalov missed practice today due to a sore back. It depends on Bryzgalov's condition tomorrow regarding the starting goalie verus Peter Budaj and the Colorado Avalanche.

"I've told Telly to be ready," Gretzky said. "When (Bryzgalov) left yesterday he was fine…If he has any tightness at all tomorrow, then obviously Telly is going to play."
