Don't expect much. We're not out of this yet so I'm sure anything will stay under-wraps.

Drury is a gamer and I bet he plays Thursday, no matter how injured he looks.

The man was in terrible pain. I hope our young guys took notice of what a true playoff trooper looks like.

Did anyone actually see what happened to Drury? Stupid Vs didn't show any replay of it.

He pulled something in either his arm or back. He was favoring one side at a point on the PP then when they thought the puck went in he kind of half raised his arms in celebration and slowly lowered them with an agonizing look on his face.

Something with the forearm or wrist I think. He didn't want anything to do with faceoffs, although I believe he took one.

If the man plays Thursday I'm running out and buying his jersey.

The only other player I'd want to buy another jersey of at clearance price is Jagr or Gomez. (Only ever buy at clearance )

Larry Brooks *believes* Drury injured his ribs somehow.

I, however, think it's his back.

I would think it was his back... Your back is connected to so many different body parts. Thats why it looked like EVERYTHING he did hurt. It looked like stick handling was a pain, clearly he couldn't bend over to do faceoffs... even stepping onto the bench looked tough. I bet it was his back.

Tough having him hurt. I was utterly impressed that he kept playing. That's a character guy right there

Ribs, back or shoulder, who knows.

What i do know is the guys a warrior. Ton of respect for coming back out and giving it a shot.

That 5th goal wouldnt have been scored, with Drury in the faceoff circle.

The first thing I thought after Hollweg's penalty (well actually the second, after "**** YOU HOLLWEG!!") was "Oh ****, we have no chance of killing this without Drury out there."

I love that man for coming back out and gritting his teeth through the third period the way he did.

And yeah, pretty much zero chance of finding out what's actually wrong with him given the secrecy and deception that always comes with hockey injuries (particularly in the playoffs).

As for Betts, I'd be shocked to see him back. The way he wobbled after getting hit with that puck, I'd bet heavily that it was a broken bone in his face and/or a concussion.

So in other words, we'll be without our two best PKers against the most lethal PP in the league in a do-or-die situation. Fan-freaking-tastic.

NHL Live saying a concussion for Betts, doubtful for tomorrow.

Guess we'll be seeing some kids tomorrow.

Backs can be painful. If it's bothering Drury too much there would be no point in dressing him. It would be like Jagr a couple years ago coming back for the final game against New Jersey and lasting a couple shifts. I was thinking broken facial bone/concussion with Betts as well and it seems at least half of that is true.

Might be getting our first look at Anisimov. The Rangers also have Moore up and Dupont who has played some center.

Seriously, he'd have to be missing legs and arms to not make the game.



It's only a flesh wound!

On the 2nd period PP where Drury gets a pass, doesn't take it and struggles to the bench, it happened right before that. He's tapping his stick like a mad man near the left side of the net. A pass comes but it misses him and goes into the corner. He's stops on a dime and crosses over to go into the corner and get the puck. From that point foward, something was wrong. I'll watch it again later, but I think that is where the injury happened. Looked to be some kind of strain, like a rib or back injury.

My dad is in the dental supplies business and he said a place he delivered to today is working on betts later. Must have broken some teeth and what not as well.

I would guess that Bett's "concussion" is similar to Richters, when he had a hairline fracture in the skull..

Rough, rough night yesterday but I gotta say I don't see any need for Drury to go tomorrow. I admire him for trying to play through it last night but he couldn't contribute as much as he was trying. If we can keep the series going, I wouldn't mind getting him back in there but I'd rather let him rest and give one of the kids a shot tomorrow night...

Drury, who has what Tom Renney calls a “torso injury,” sounds more likely for tomorrow than Betts, who may have fractured a cheek bone after taking a puck to the face. Either way, we’re not likely to know anything more until tomorrow.
