According to HCDB, Jordan Staal is out 4-6 weeks with a knee injury. James Neal is out "weeks" with a broken foot after taking a shot off it last night vs. Devils, and this morning at practice Craig Adams "stressed a previous knee injury" and will be reevaluated Monday. Mother of God.
According to the Penguins website, the Pens have suffered 210 man-games lost due to injuries. At this rate, the Pens are on pace to suffer 431 man-games lost. That would far surpass last year's total of 350.
Pens are now riding a 4 game losing streak, and all have come at the hands of an Atlantic Division team. The Pens haven't won a divisional game since Dec. 10 vs. Islanders.
Standings as of today. Pens are slipping, and slipping fast. The road ahead doesn't get much easier. 8 of the next 13 games for the Pens are against current playoff teams. Buckle up.
