Green left their game on Wednesday against the Islanders with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. Also missing tonight’s game for Washington is defenseman Tom Poti who is out with a lower body injury. Jumping…

    The prognosis is not good for either Chris Drury or Marian Gaborik after suffering injuries tonight against Toronto, but it may be worse for Vinny Prospal. It was a bad night to be an injured Ranger.

    It’s a good thing that the Ottawa Senators are used to life without Pascal Leclaire – and with backup/1b goalie Brian Elliott – because it looks like the troubled goalie will face yet another injury issue. Leclaire left tonight’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes with a “lower body injury” and won’t return, according to TSN.…

    While it’s not a guarantee that he will actually play this weekend, things are looking up for Washington Capitals Semyon Varlamov. Coach Bruce Boudreau said he is expected to dress for Saturday’s game against the Nashville Predators, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post. “Unless something crazy happens tomorrow he’ll be dressing for Saturday’s…

  6. Chicago Blackhawks expect Patrick Kane to miss Friday’s game with ‘an illness’

    Oct 14, 2010, 7:38 PM EDT

    Patrick Kane

    You’ve probably heard this borderline cliche before, but it seems to be pretty accurate: the only thing tougher than winning a Stanley Cup is winning it again the next season. The Chicago Blackhawks actually are playing some pretty good hockey so far this season; it just seems like they’ve been just a goal or save…

    The Carolina Hurricanes left Helsinki, Finland for the better, even if they might still be a bit bleary-eyed from the long flight and crazy hour change. They went 2-0 and Cam Ward looked sharp, but the biggest beneficiary might just be Sergei Samsonov. He missed those first two games recovering from a preseason injury, but…

    Mark Fraser, Cody McCormick

    With Brian Rolston on LTIR, the Devils can now field a full roster of players… That is as long as they don’t go breaking their hands in a fight like Mark Fraser did.

    Oct 12, 2010, 5:51 PM EDT

    Andy Sutton, Peter Schaefer

    Bad news for the miserable Anaheim Ducks: the team announced that big, tough defenseman Andy Sutton will miss six to eight weeks. Sutton needed surgery after fracturing his right thumb Friday against the Detroit Red Wings. The Ducks won’t be able to blame their problems on Sutton’s absence, but his large presence will be missed…

  12. Ottawa Senators hope for the best as Daniel Alfredsson gets his ‘lower body injury’ re-evaluated

    Oct 12, 2010, 5:07 PM EDT

    Ottawa Senators v Washington Capitals

    It’s already been a pretty tough start for the Ottawa Senators, as the team went 0-3 in their first three games so far this season. Things could get quite a bit worse if they lose their captain Daniel Alfredsson, though. The high-scoring Swede left Monday’s game against Washington with the always vague “lower-body injury” and…

    As we discussed earlier today, Brian Rafalski had surgery on his knee today and now we have a better idea of how much time he will miss after getting it scoped. TSN reports that the 37-year-old Detroit Red Wings defenseman will miss three to four weeks recovering from the arthroscopic knee surgery procedure. Red Wings…

    Oct 11, 2010, 8:30 PM EDT

    Jason Pominville

    The Buffalo Sabres provided a little bit of good news and bad news in regard to Jason Pominville’s status. The good news: not only did Pominville show signs of consciousness when he was carted off the ice on a stretcher, but he reportedly won’t need to go to the hospital. At least not according to…
