ugh...as if Smithson needed more ice time. Last word I saw was that it is an "upper body" and we'll get more info on Tuesday. Does anyone even know where this came from? I see nothing on OTF or yahoo...
He was in the tunnel after the game ended in St. Louis Friday night dressed in warm ups. It looked like players were avoiding making contact (i.e. no high fives) with him so I assumed he was sick and nobody wanted to catch what he has. I'm sure Dr. Trotz will have some spectacularly strange diagnosis tomorrow.
Don't think anyone has a clue about Wilson's injury except for the hated "upper body" misinformation. My wife and I reviewed the team coming off the ice after the St. Louis game trying to catch a glimpse of something. We couldn't tell anything really. Just that he didn't look happy even though we'd won.
Trotz said they would know more today or tomorrow. You could infer that they are planning a MRI.
Guarding information about injuries is the one thing in the NHL that drives me nuts.
He caught a stick to the mouth. Possible jaw ... possible concussion ... possible flu ... possible he injured his ribs or shoulder and it didn't catch up to him until after the game ... possible zombie attack .... who the hell knows.
that was a goalie stick to the face, wasn't it? knob end, straight up, when he was camped in front? any stick gotta' hurt, goalie is moving that stick hard and fast - gotta' be quite a shot when you get hit. easily broken jaw, something in sinuses or teeth, even a concussion - all keep ya' out for a bit.
