Obviously concussion symptoms can surface at any time seemingly but what was encouraging to me about that injury today was how quickly Sid got up after being hit by that puck. He skated off in his own power and did not look to be in any distress aside from the mouth issue.

When he got hit by Steckel and Hedman he was very clearly in distress immediately.

But again, symptoms don't always surface right away. Fortunately we have two days off now. If he feels alright the next two days you'd think there's a good chance he's back in there Tuesday.

I wouldn't mind him sitting out a couple of games just as a precaution. I'd hate to see him lose ground in the scoring race, but IMO as long as he doesn't miss more than like 3-5 games he's got that scoring title in the bag. In any case his health is the most important thing regardless of my selfish desires as a fan. Damn will I be pissed if he's out for any length of time and loses out on some well deserved recognition though.
