There will be no hearing for defenseman Radko Gudas in regard to his hit on Rangers rookie Jimmy Vesey on Monday night. Though Gudas was ejected from the game immediately after the hit, the NHL said there was no need to hold a hearing.

"I think we both made the wrong decision," Gudas said. "I was committed to the hit, and when he was turning it was tough to stop."

Weal makes his case

With the start of the season quickly approaching, center Jordan Weal is doing all he can to secure a spot on the roster. Weal scored his second goal of the preseason Monday night against the Rangers and is looking to continue to impress the coaches.

"I am just trying to work hard every day, play my game, and try to make the guys around me better," Weal said. "If I do that, then come next Sunday I'll probably be here."

Provorov pairs with Streit

Rookie defensemen Ivan Provorov, 19, is also competing for a roster spot, and was paired with 38-year-old Mark Streit at practice Tuesday. Provorov will try to talk to Streit as much as he can to help improve his game.

"He has been in this league a long time, and he has lots of experience." Provorov said. "For me, it is just trying to learn every day, and get better every day."
