I'll take a wild guess and assume that this was done as a precautionary move since the Habs D are dropping like flies. With Markov, O'Byrne, and Gill injured, plus last night Spacek was injured but came back. The Habs have Alex Henry who has been out since preseason but is due back any day now and might be ready this weekend but if not they have on the farm, PK Subban, Yanick Weber, Andre Benoit, Fred St-Denis and Chad Anderson plus Mike Butso who I think is now healthy.

So with the Habs playing tomorrow and Hamilton playing tonight and Sunday, the Habs and Dogs are very thin on defensemen if anything is wrong with Spacek. If not they would have to call someone from Hamilton which would mean they would have to play with 5 D.
