Preds’ Weber to miss Tuesday’s game versus Canucks

Predators captain Shea Weber will reportedly miss tomorrow’s home game versus the Canucks as he continues to recover from an eye injury.

Weber already missed Saturday’s 3-2 shootout loss to Philadelphia with the injury; the 28-year-old defenseman was forced to leave Thursday’s game versus Edmonton after being struck in the face with a puck.

It’s not clear how long Weber will remain out of Nashville’s lineup, but his absence against Vancouver marks an opportunity for the veteran Canucks to finish their road trip with a third victory in four tries.

Not that the Preds played poorly Saturday; in fact, they outshot Philadelphia, 36-24.

“Our goal was just to play our game; it doesn’t matter who is out,” said d-man Roman Josi, who played around half the game in Weber’s absence. “Just keep playing how we’re playing, and I thought we played solid. They didn’t have many chances.”
