St. Louis, who has played 499 consecutive games, was bleeding as he was helped from the ice by a trainer. St. Louis was circling behind the net during a drill when teammate Dominic Moore backhanded a shot high and wide and hit St. Louis.
"He has been playing extremely well," Yzerman said. "He's been playing phenomenally. We'll assume he won't be able to play tonight. It's a difficult loss for the team, but it's an opportunity for other guys to step up."
We're assuming right now, but if we know Marty, he'll play with 1 eye if he has to.
Reading those Boucher quotes and Marty could be out tonight.. I just.. WTF is wrong with this team? Starting to take laziness to a whole new level here. I don't mind when a team sucks but they're still out there battling, but when a team sucks and isn't putting in the effort? **** off.
So just to make sure I've got it straight, probably no Marty and definitely no Thompson for tonight? Ugh. This would be a great time for the Rangers to give the Lightning their payoff for last game of the season.
(oops, also no Kubina...so things aren't completely off the rails)
