Anybody know if Konopka is injured? Why didn't he play Saturday? Is he going to play this week? Was Szezechura called up to take his place? Thanks for the info in advance.
He is listed with a lower-body injury, but I don't think it's anything serious. Probably just needed a couple days off to rest. He probably can return Tuesday, but I think Tocchet won't change the line up and will stay with the guys that just won. Szczechura wasn't recalled to fill in for an injury, because Bochenski who has been a healthy scratch could have filled in. Toc called out a few players for not playing hard enough the game before, so I think he was called up to take one of those players spots.
