The Colorado Avalanche continue to lose players to injury at an astonishing rate. The latest to stay off the ice are Kyle Quincey (concussion), David Van Der Gulik and T.J. Galiardi. The latter two were injured during last night’s game. From Adrian Dater:
His [Galiardi’s] hand got jammed into the top of the dasher after a hit from Iginla. He left the ice in obvious pain. You have to hope it isn’t broken.
*Update: It is broken. He’s out indefinitely, and Van Der Gulik tore his MCL and out indefinitely.
