Langenbrunner Out 5-4 Weeks

Key Points

- walking without the aid of crutches
- surgery => repair torn cartilage in left knee
- original estimate => two to three weeks
- reality => four to five weeks
- has been working out for six days
- a brace prevents him from moving the knee past 70 degrees

Other notes

- Schwab is back
- Madden will play wearing a full shield
- Berglund did not practice => bruise
- Stevenson did not skate => groin

"Martin Brodeur, who was given the day off, was named NHL Defensive Player of the Week."

Every time we get Langenbrunner updates the news is worse and worse. This hurts. It may be just one more week each time, but damn... gotta hope this doesn't snowball and compound any further then it already has. Very surprised that Madden will come back with a visor as he's said many times over in the press he hates how they fog up and obscure his vision late into shifts. Btw, I used that Rain-X anti-fog stuff on the windows in my vehicle the other day and it only made the situation worse then it already was. Must be serious if he's ditching his old theory on not being in favor of mandatory visors. I think I read White was wearing protective/limiting braces on both knees against the Flyers over the weekend as well.

Maybe its one of those shields they wear in College where its not a visor, but a full face shield that looks like goalie masks do. I dunno.

Yeah I guess it could be the cage and not a visor. You're probably right.

Remember the one Stevens wore a few years back for some injury? Could be like that too -- the full visor with the lower facemask to protect the jaw and mouth area.

Cage.

I could not think of what it was called for the life of me.
