The Flames have announced that they will be without Dion Phaneuf for Game 6 of their series against the Blackhawks tonight. Phaneuf reportedly suffered the upper body injury when he collided with Blackhawks forward, Troy Brouwer. There is no certain answer as to what the injury actually is or how long it would keep him out of the line-up, if the Flames were to continue through the playoffs.
The Box 8 defenseman was not a popular pick on the Playoff Pool sheet, being picked only 3 times through 61 teams. In the series versus Chicago, Phaneuf only has 2 points.
