Tuesday's Injury Updates - Thornton, Downie, Bergenheim...

Joe Thornton says he feels 100% (no doubt that's a lie) after leaving Sunday's game early with an undisclosed injury and that he'll definitely be in the lineup for tonight's game #5.

Steve Downie played last night after leaving the previous game looking pretty woozie... so either the whole concussion protocol thing is out the window, Downie can shake that stuff off very quickly or he was putting on an act the other night when he left looking like a drunken sailor.  My vote is for a combo of all three.

Sean Bergenheim left last night's game with what looked like some sorta groin injury (lower-body at least).  No update on his status was given after the game.

The Bruins Johnny Boychuk also left last night's game with a head injury after taking a hit from Downie.  Julien said after the game that he was fine, so I guess that means he'll be ready to go next game.

Christian Ehrhoff (shoulder) skated yesterday and could return to the lineup tonight but there are some doubts about that.
