There was a healthy amount of speculation surrounding this one, so forgive me for the late update. Just wanted to make sure I got the info straight.
In either case, tally up another injury for the Pens and their battered blue line. GoGo will join Brooks Orpik, Kris Letang and Sergei Gonchar on the shelf for the next two to three weeks, although it would seem that time period is more a guesstimate than an actual return date.
"He's getting an MRI today; He's got a lower-body injury. We are going to estimate 2 to 3 weeks on Alex."
At this point we can only hope that the prognosis of "two to three weeks" is, at best, the longest the team can expect to have him out. In other words, I'm really hoping that's not perceived as the minimum with the potential for more weeks or days to get added to it.
Let's play a game. How many injured players can you name in under 30 seconds? Extra credit if you include the farm.
