The Thrashers know this situation all too well. Box 31 goalie, Kari Lehtonen, left the game after the first period on Thursday night with an upper body injury. The oft-injured goalie was crashed into midway through the period and managed to play through until the period's end, not to return. Still no word on the severity of the injury yet.
Scary moment for Dallas against the Kings, as Trevor Daley was knocked out of the game after being run head first into the boards. Daley left the game with an upper body injury as well, but managed to skate off the ice under his own power, which is good news for the type of hit that it was. The Box 14 defenseman will be re-evaluated before this weekend's play. Also, Fabian Brunnstrom did not dress for the Stars, as he was a healthy scratch.
The Canadiens still appear to be dealing with the flu bug this season, as Andrei Kostitsyn missed last night's game against the Lightning with an illness. The only word out of Habs camp is that he is under the weather and that he is day-to-day for now. Montreal goes again on Saturday, at home to Buffalo.
The revolving door continues in Phoenix. On Thursday night, pool players, Steve Reinprecht and David Hale, were both in the press box for the game against the Oilers. Making his way back into the line-up was Keith Yandle. Phoenix is in San Jose on Saturday night and I would assume there will be some more shuffling around in the line-up.
