The good news is that the Anaheim Ducks are in much better condition than they were the last time Ryan Getzlaf was injured.
That’s even true in the smallest sense, as the Ducks are hoping to hold onto a 2-0 lead against the Arizona Coyotes; if they do so, that would mark 10 straight wins.
In a broader sense, they’re jockeying with the Los Angeles Kings for the top position in the Pacific Division, so they can afford to let Getzlaf heal. He’s considered day-to-day, so … maybe this is just a small concern?
INJURY: Ryan Getzlaf (lower-body) is day-to-day. He's hopeful he can play Saturday against LA.
The Ottawa Senators have had bad injury luck lately, and that trend continued on Thursday.
As you can see from the video above, Mark Borowiecki hit the boards awkwardly after a seemingly innocuous collision with Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Matt Carle.
The play-by-play accurately stated that Borowiecki seemed uncomfortable right away, flexing his leg after that bump. It turns out he wasn’t feeling great for a reason, as the Senators label him as out indefinitely with a lower-body injury.
#Sens Mark Borowiecki suffered a right knee injury and will not return to tonight's game. He will be sidelined indefinitely.
