Brooks is reporting it is a MCL tear. He left the game on crutches. That is not good. MRI today.
Blair Betts sustained an apparent MCL tear 2:50 into the game and will be sidelined for an undetermined period of time. The checking center, who will undergo an MRI today, left the building on crutches.
Maybe Immonen can come in. Is he a good penalty killer? We need to fill the penalty killing void left by Betts. Our PK has looked worse as of late and we can't afford to lose PKers. Damn. On the bright side, teams have more injuries and there could be worse injuries than this.
I guess thats as good as we could expect. He should be back after the Olympic break. This coupled with the Sykora trade today pretty much means that Rucchin will center the 4th line with Ward and Niemo. Lineup should look something like this:
