The injury bug is in full swing:
“Paul Stastny blocked a shot yesterday. He has a foot injury,” said Granato. “He didn’t skate today, so we’ll see how he is tomorrow.”
Darcy Tucker is also hurting; apparently he sat out last night's game due to back spasms, not general suckiness (a cheap joke; Tucker has been playing better lately).
In addition, none of the three injured defensemen - Tjarnqvist (head), Foote (head) and Salei (foot) - sound like they'll be back on Thursday against Edmonton.
