Jimmy Update

Quick update to Jimmy Howard’s knee. The team has officially called it a bruised knee. The puck definitely got through the pads. Jimmy will not return to the game, and most likely will not play tomorrow night either. I imagine that there will not be a callup from the minors and Macdonald will start and Jimmy will sit on the bench, unless of course(god forbid) it turns out to be something worse. Thank the stars that it wasn’t a tweaked joint or torn ligament. We cannot afford another lengthy injury this season. When Jimmy went down writhing in pain I actually started having chest pains and saw the season flash before my eyes. Be good to that leg Jimmy if you know what’s good for you…. im not joking.
