Friday's Injury Updates - Phaneuf, RNH, Backstrom...

This can't be good for his handsomeness... Dion Phaneuf took a puck to the face last night and had to leave the game.

Bad news here as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is out for 3-4 weeks with a shoulder injury.

Nicklas Backstrom (head injury) participated in practice yesterday and declared himself ready to play on Saturday.

Tyler Ennis (ankle) suffered a setback and is now out indefinitely again.

Kimmo Timonen left last night's game with a suspected wrist injury.

Mark Letestu broke his hand last night and is out long-term.

The sniffles felled Brad Marchand last night and he couldn't play... pop a couple of Fisherman's Friend (now in Citrus!) and he should be right back at it.

Brian Gionta (groin) should be good to go for Saturday.

It looked like Colin Wilson was ready to return last night but instead he sat out his third straight game due to a UBI.

Returning to action from the injured list last night: Shea Weber, Mikael Samuelsson, Stephane Robidas & Sergei Gonchar.
