Update: Parise will know extent of foot injury Tuesday

Nov 25, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

Minnesota Wild star Zach Parise appeared to injure his left foot blocking St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen‘s shot on Monday, although he did return to the game.

Update: Parise went in and out of the game struggling with the injury. Speaking of that issue, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Michael Russo reports the 29-year-old was limping around badly after the game and will know more about the issue on Tuesday.

In case it wasn’t obvious, a serious injury for Parise would be extremely costly for the Wild. He has 22 points in 24 games and is absolutely firing the puck with 106 shots on goal this season (second only to Alex Ovechkin).

So far, it seems like the Wild might have gotten lucky here, although it’s possible that he might decide to end his night early if the pain is too severe.

    he’s also trying to shake off a bad call by the ref on ice and an even worse call by Toronto by not reversing the on ice call of a no goal…. then the Blues score a minute later. go figure.

    I hate this game sometimes, HA. :)

      I tend to agree with you. If the on-ice call had been a goal that would have probably stood. Not enough evidence to reverse.

    The Blues are killing us, the Wild can’t establish any puck possession!
    I just might say the Blues could be the SC winners this year

      no shocker there tho, as in the Blues being SC potential winners. I still think the cup goes through Chicago. I really can’t comprehend why Chicago isn’t getting that much love this season. They are coming off a cup run (played into the summer) had player turnover and still continue to win with decent at best goalie play.

      Anaheim currently matches up better against Chicago in the playoffs to me that the Blues but the Blues are so good defensively and in net. If they score 3 a game in the playoffs, its game over, heck maybe two goals.

      that said, the Wild played poorly in the 1st and most of the 2nd but had very bad puck luck, Backstrom gave up a goal and the refs took one from Parise. In reality, they were outplayed but the game could have been 1-1 as easily as 2-0 or 3-1 or 4-3… With Granlund out and Parise with what I am guessing is a broken foot now, its going to get ugly with our schedule up ahead. They need to win both against Colorado.

    Your headline is confusing. He should now?

    Once again. And here’s a thought. Blues played pretty darn well…on your network I might add. Possibly write an article about them after a good game?? Maybe? Nah I guess that’s too much to ask ….
