The Blueshirts hope to stay alive once again when they host the Pittsburgh Penguins in Sundays Game 6 battle at Madison Square Garden.TORONTO -- Dogged by injuries last season, Joffrey Lupul seemed to be fine over the summer. He worked with Toronto Maple Leafs skating instructor Barb Underhill and Anaheim Ducks strength and conditioning coach Sean Skahan and went to training camp hoping to participate. Instead, back spasms prevented Lupul from being cleared to skate on the first day of on-ice activities. "Hes had some back issues before, so we dont think its anything long term," coach Randy Carlyle said. "Its just precautionary measures to make sure that hes 100 per cent." Carlyle said that Lupuls back tightened up Tuesday, the day before players reported to take physicals. Like Lupul, enforcer Colton Orr was not cleared and is expected to be off the ice for a week. Orr, who played 44 games last season and had a league-high 155 penalty minutes, has a bone bruise on his leg. Luppul is entering the first year of a US$26. Jose Fernando Cuadrado Jersey. 25-million contract. The 29-year-old left-winger missed all but 16 regular-season games last year because of a broken right arm and a concussion. Carlyle didnt appear to be overly worried about Lupuls absence, but he didnt brush it off either. "Theres always concern when a player gets hurt. Its one of those things that he looked extremely well coming up to camp, and its unfortunate that this thing happened," Carlyle said. "Hes put a lot of work in over the summer and looked very energized and very, very fit to come and play, but injuries are all part of it." Neither Lupul nor Orr spoke to reporters Thursday. Defensive prospects Matt Finn and Kenny Ryan also did not skate. Finn suffered a shoulder injury over the weekend at the rookie tournament the Maple Leafs hosted in London, Ont. ' ' '
