You know it's getting close to playoff time when the only injury news you hear is upper and lower body injuries. Matt Cullen of the Carolina Hurricanes has now been sidelined with a lower body injury and was not in the line-up for the Hurricanes on Monday night against the Panthers. The injury was said to have occurred on Saturday, which he finished the game, but didn't feel great afterward. He remains questionable for Wednesday's game.
The Devils decided to rest Patrik Elias on Monday night, as he was also suffering from some lower body soreness. The Devils all-time scoring leader should likely figure back into the line-up for their next game on Friday in Chicago. This is welcomed news for Peter, as he needs Elias to be in the Devils' line-up to climb back into the money in the Draft.
