Saturday's Injury Updates - E.Staal, Green, Pavelec...

For a consolidated list of injuries & current status, see our Injury Updates page.

Eric Staal left last night's game after getting rocked pretty good and he likely has some sort of head injury... we're getting mixed signals so far as Paul Maurice said he doesn't think Staal will miss much action, if any.

Mike Green returned last night after missing five with a head injury and right away he took a elbow to the chops and had to leave the game... not cool. 

Brian Rafalski is out for tonight's game due to back spasms but he's not expected to be out long.

Ondrej Pavelec left last night's game early with an undisclosed injury but it is not believed to be serious.

Marc Staal missed last night's game with a knee injury and he's expected to miss Sunday's game as well... he's listed as day-to-day.

Shawn Horcoff left last night's game after getting hit by a shot... no word on the injury or the extent.

Nikolai Khabibulin is expected to be out a few days with an eye infection.

Rostislav Olesz left last night's game with a knee injury that could be serious.  Chris Higgins also left the game with an undisclosed injury.  Still with Florida, Dennis Wideman missed last night's game with a minor undisclosed injury and Jack Skille is likely out a while with an ankle sprain suffered Thursday.

Tim Jackman got into two fights last night and left the game after the second one with what is being called a UBI.

Dan Boyle missed last night's game and is day-to-day with a UBI

Semyon Varlamov was hurt in practice today and is out day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

Steve Sullivan is on the IR due to a groin injury... he's already missed 18 games this year due to this.

Chris Pronger (hand) is questionable for tonight's game but he shouldn't be out long. 

Returning to action from the injured list last night:  Erik Karlsson & Dustin Jeffrey.
