Tough break (literally) for all-star Jimmy Howard
Jimmy Howard broke a finger in the Canucks game. Apparently it's just the tip of his finger so he won't need to wait for it to heal fully. Initial reports say he will miss two games then be reevaluated.
Matt Duchene is still not even practicing with the team so he has to be at least a week away.
Both Blues dealing with concussions, Andy McDonald and Alexander Steen will not be travelling with the team for their road trip. It seemed like both of them were getting close to returning so there may have been a setback in both cases.
Returning to action: Jeff Carter, Jason Blake, Kris Versteeg
