Losing one of these guys is not like the other
Losing one of these guys is not like the other

Christian Ehrhoff was knocked out of last night's game after taking a knee-on-knee hit and initial reports say that he could be out a while.

Evgeni Nabokov was forced to leave last night's game after two periods due to a LBI, he'll be re-evaluated today. This could be good news for jsuites as Al Montoya may be in for a run of games to finish up the season... oh boy!

Kris Letang missed last night's game and is day-to-day with a LBI, which as far as we know is not another concussion scare.

When Paul Holmgren says you're fine, you should get concerned... Ilya Bryzgalov has a broken foot but apparently Holmgren considers that to be "fine" and doesn't think it is serious. Bryz will miss Thursday's game but he may be able to return as early as this weekend.

Taylor Hall is dealing with a concussion so no better time to go under the knife for major shoulder surgery that he has been putting off for years. It will take him 5-6 months to rehab which means that he could just be feeling better when next season is rolling around.

James Reimer apparently has a UBI that kept him out of last night's game. Not sure what the full deal is there. This gave "The Bus" Jussi Rynnas a chance to make his NHL debut.

Kimmo Timonen is day-to-day with a UBI which may or may not be related to his nagging back injury.

We have confirmation from the Wild that Matt Cullen is donsies due to his broken finger.

Not a surprise here... reports say that Nathan Horton (concussion) is a long way off from returning. I could have guessed that from the fact that he hasn't been back on the ice lately.

Expect to see Johan Franzen back in the lineup tonight sans back pain.

Returning to action from the injured list last night: Steve Sullivan, Clarke MacArthur, Marcus Kruger & Colin Wilson.
