Pacioretty not getting seriously hurt would be great news. We wont be playing until Friday, we get Pouliot back and Max soon after. Someone better step up to compensate for Cammalleri though... I'm looking at you Andrei Kostitsyn.
Mike Boone from HIO reports the Canadiens made it through Customs last night with no new injuries. Things are looking up.
Cammalleri: he was out of action a little bit when he was on the ice. Although he was coming around it opens up an opportunity for Eller perhaps.
Pacioretty: this one concerns me more than Cammalleri perhaps. He brought a physical presence to the Gomez line and seemed to get Gomez going.
Halpern: the Habs best faceoff guy.......ughh. Desharnais is crafty.
C'mon boys (Pouliot, Eller, AK) step up and show what you can REALLY do.
And unfortunately evidence is piling up that the D is getting beat up. Hamrlik was already and continues to block shots, evidently Gill was a little injured last night, and Subban took one in the foot.
Can anyone verify whether or not Subban was wearing the skateguards? Do most of the players wear them? I hope so.
The game last night reminded of the game in Ottawa last year that the Habs gutted out. Spacek went down early and I think a couple of forwards left in that game too.
Instead of scattering the news in different threads, I thought maybe having only one thread to discuss all of tonight's injuries would be better.
What we know so far:
Halpern ---> Separated shoulder.
Cammalleri ---> Separated shoulder. Out AT LEAST 2 weeks.
Pacioretty ---> Rib injury. Taken to the hospital for precautionary measures. UPDATE: Well enough to fly home.
Gill ---> Foot injury? Had a VERY hard time getting back to the dressing room. UPDATE: Nothing serious.
Gorges ---> Out for the year
Markov ---> Out for the year
Where did you get your info on Halpern? They said yesterday he was battling the flu, hence only getting 6-7 shifts.
If Cammalleri really seperated his shoulder, its not two weeks.
Towes was to be out 2 weeks with the same injury and only missed 2 games. If they are calling for 2 weeks it's a minor separation, not a dislocation.

There are 5 grades of shoulder separation, chances are if they are saying 2 weeks then it's a minor one...
