Looks like Backlund will be out at least a week, along with Kiprusoff.

Good for Street to be given a shot would prefer Horak but o well hopefully Street can make the most of this chance.

Street has bee the Heats best play all year long, including when Baertschi was there.

Looks like Irving will have a good solid chance to show what he can do now. I expect good things.

And Backlund really does have some awful luck. Shows some jump during pre-season last year but breaks a finger. When he comes back, he's relegated to the fourth line and never gets a proper chance again. This season, he's showing that he can be a legitimate top six forward, only to get injured again. It's a shame really. I do hope it doesn't affect his confidence going forward.

Edit: From TSN:
Quote:
Kiprusoff was placed on IR retroactive to February 5th with a Grade 1 MCL sprain. He is expected to miss approximately one week, according to a team release. Backlund is out with a Grade 2 MCL sprain and could miss 4-6 weeks, according to the release.
Okay, time to tank.

2 way it is close but offensively Sven was a far better player (from the games I saw)

This is real bad, 4-6 weeks is hard to swallow, especially from a player who was finally breaking out. I hope street makes the most of this opportunity

At least there is a spot open when Sven is cleared to play.

So what was essentially the second line on opening day (Sven - Backlund - Cammy) is now all injured. That's no small blow to the team's depth.

You gotta feel for Backlund. Poor kid can't catch a break.

Cripes. I hope Baertschi is healthy soon.

At least 2/3 of that line is only week to week.

Fortunately, they were only the 2nd line on opening night because the actual second line was injured / grieving.

Week to week is fairly significant in a shortened season.
