No not injured.

Hitchcock did not play him at all in the 3rd period, and none of our genius hockey writers even brought it up after the game.

He's fine and will be in the line-up Tuesday night.

I don't think that is necessarily the case, as he was out late in the game against Pittsburgh when it was tied, and he dominated during the OT.

He was also on the ice late against San Jose in a 0-0 tie.

I don't think it's that. I guess he didn't want a rookie in that type of a Physical game. he might have been worried that they were going to try and hurt him like they did Handzus and Gagné

Well Pitkanen was also the direct cause of one of the goals against...he definitely went from the "penthouse" to the "dog house" in a very quick amount of time, as Dorny said.

We'll see...I think it might have been some sort of punishment maybe...

Yeah the lack of information from Panaccio and Moran was kind of startling. I thought one of them would've mentioned it, as they've been talking about Pitkanen in many articles.

Hitch was dissapointed with Pitkanen's play I guess, as I read that he basically was the cause for one of Phoenix's goals. Then again, the kid had a goal and an assist himself. Still, it might be Hitchcock's way of giving the kid some "tough love," and not let him get used to always playing just because he's a big young stud.

I agree, more of a message than punishment.
