According to Tracey Myers, the MRI results are “still hazy”, which, I don’t know what that means. It’s a groin issue, and Russian will definitely be out for at least the next two games. Apparently it’s not SOOPER SRS or anything, just something he’ll need to rest and recover from. This means he’s out for the All-Star game, so we’ll know later if the Stars are going to send anyone in Russian’s place.
Heika reports that Finnja Jussi and Finnja Lehtinen will be back soon – they’ve both been skating and looking good. Tracey Myers said that Jussi might play as early as Thursday, but both are expected back after Sunday. Soon the Stars will be back to FULL FINNJA POWER!
Sadly, there aren’t too many updates about Boucher. Poor Boucher.
The poor Pittsburgh Penguins will be without Cindy Crosby for 6-8 weeks, as he’s got the high ankle sprain and all.
