Last night Chuck Kobasew took a puck in the ankle in the second period but finished the game and even set up David Krejci’s game-winner. As with many ankle injuries in hockey, it wasn’t a problem until he removed his skate.
But according to the great Kevin Paul Dupont, he’s in a walking cast today and getting an x-ray. He may have fractured it and could miss tomorrow night’s game. He missed 11 games last year and 32 the year before.
The team is considering putting Andrew Alberts at the wing for tomorrow night’s game against Minnesota. That’s just what Boston, the team that had the third-most games lost to injury last year, needs.
