This is a sport, players get injured, that's a fact.
That those injuries help the other teams is also a fact
. It's not "good news! Phillips is hurt! Yay!!" It's "well that's good news for the Rangers chances against the Sens in tomorrows game"
Doesn't work that way all the time, so no its not a 'fact'.
And btw, Chris Phillips is never the reason we lose to the Sens.
Who's to say whoever takes his place doesn't stick it to us even more? Say a guy who gets called up and is out to prove he belongs?
'Great news' should be your last option if you can't come up with a more tactful way of relaying this info.
