The Ottawa Senators’ ridiculous run of injuries continued on Thursday as defenseman Sergei Gonchar suffered an undisclosed injury.

The good news is that head coach Paul MacLean didn’t seem too concerned about the mystery ailment, which will apparently be re-evaluated on Friday.

It’s especially cruel timing because the 38-year-old blueliner has been generating some of his best production in ages lately. He extended a nine-game point streak (one goal, 13 assists) with a helper in Ottawa’s 2-1 loss to the Boston Bruins tonight.

Again, it’s heartening that his issue might not be too serious, but the Senators’ injury list is just absurd:

Yup, that’s pretty outrageous.

    Wow! That’s all I can say. What did they do that ticked off the Hockey Gods so much?

      Hockey Gods move in strange and mysterious ways. They provided these kids a chance to play in the big show and they have risen to the challenge in a big way. Good on them for not playing the pity card,folding up the tent and going home.
