Martin Erat was boarded last night and it did not look good. He may have managed two injuries on the same play. His head hit the boards and he looked to have tweaked something in his right leg. He was dazed as he was helped off and couldn't put any weight on the leg. No word is available on his status as of now.
Good news on the Joffrey Lupul front as he passed his concussion tests and supposedly just has a stiff neck. He's actually on the ice for the morning skate as I write this.
Surprisingly, Alexander Semin had not sat out a game all season, but that came to an end last night as he was scratched with a UBI. It doesn't sound like he'll be out much more than the one game, however.
Curtis Glencross is dealing with a LBI and couldn't give it a go last night. There's no further info out there so just consider him day-to-day for now.
Kris Letang is dealing with a groin issue in addition to his broken toe so maybe he's isn't on the verge of returning any day now.
Silly Alexei Emelin tried to check Milan Lucic and bounced off him like a pinball. Emelin had to be helped to the locker room and was seen on crutches after the game. I'd say he's going to miss a few games.
Also missing last night's game with the flu was Lauri Korpikoski.
Make it six straight games for Thomas Vanek (UBI) as he'll be in the press box again tonight.
