Thomas Vanek suffered a UBI in last night's game an exited the contest early. Afterwards the team said that he is expected to miss at least a week but will be re-evaluated today.
Sidney Crosby skated with teammates yesterday, so that's the good news. The mysterious news is that we got dueling doctors behind the scenes as after a MD or two said that Sid had fractured vertebrae, some other medicine man says negative. Who the F knows, as I said the other day, good luck trying to figure out when he'll recover as doctors can't even agree what is wrong with the guy.
Lee Stempniak left last night's game early with a LBI, not sure how serious it is.
Big hole here as Jason Blake missed last night's game with a foot injury... sounds like he's just day-to-day.
Brenden Morrow (neck) was activated from the IR yesterday and should return tonight.
