A fantasized look at some NHL injury news.
Bad news for Ray Whitney owners - he is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a broken foot.
Brendan Smith played only 2:46 before leaving the game after a Derek McKenzie hit. No word yet in the severity. Wings now have seven regulars out of the lineup.
Leave it to James Wisniewski to sustain three different injuries at the same time, but we just hope he'll be okay after sustaining a concussion, back and leg injuries last night in a collision with the boards.
Martin Erat missed Saturday's game after blocking a shot during practice. No word on how long he might be out.
Word is that Max Pacioretty may be back for today's game. Nothing concrete yet. UPDATE: As per Mike Benedicks, Patches is taking warm-ups and it looks like he's a go.
