Dion Phaneuf took a shot off the ankle and then a skate to the chest last night but returned from both so while he might be a little sore, he shouldn't miss any action.
Kris Russell has been off again, on again over the past few days but the word now is that he's off and won't play in the CBJs opening game today... but he could play in the rematch with the Sharks tomorrow.
Semyon Varlamov's mystery injury is... a sore groin. Which isn't really shocking but a little troubling as he struggled to recover from a groin injury last year.
