Ryan Callahan remains day-to-day after undergoing an emergency appendectomy earlier in the week. It’ll be up to him whether he plays in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final between his Lightning and his former Rangers, slated for tomorrow afternoon at MSG.

Callahan missed Tuesday’s Game 6 of the Lightning’s second-round series versus Montreal, but managed to return to practice yesterday. The 30-year-old winger practiced again today, skating on a line with Cedric Paquette and Jonathan Marchessault.

Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper told reporters that it was “a pain-tolerance thing” for Callahan now.

“Ultimately it’s up to Ryan Callahan,” said Cooper.
