As expected with Hossa's injury, the Penguins reached to the farm today in what is close to the hundredth time this season. Both Connor James and Alex Goglioski have been upped once again to the parent club and can be expected on ice for Saturday's game against the Senators.
As of right now the injuries are as follows:
Sidney Crosby - one to two more weeks for his ankle to heal
Marian Hossa - one to two weeks, MRI pending on his sprained MCL
Rob Scuderi - two to three weeks with fractured/broken fingers
Kris Beech - season, broken wrist
Gary Roberts - perhaps the remainder of the season with torn ligaments
Adam Hall - season with sports hernia surgery
Mark Eaton - season with ACL tear
With that in mind, is it amazing to anyone else that the Pens are still only one point out of first in the CONFERENCE?
