Khabibulin Injured - Status Unknown

from Tim Sassone of Between the Circles,

We might not know until Friday how badly Nikolai Khabibulin and Aaron Johnson are hurt.

Khabibulin went down in the final minute of the second period of Wednesday’s 3-2 OT loss to the Sharks with what appeared to be a groin or hamstring problem. Joel Quenneville didn’t know if Khabibulin would be examined Thursday in San Jose, where the Hawks were to practice, or if he would need to return to Chicago.  If the injury is serious, Cristobal Huet would vault into the spotlight and we’d likely see Antti Niemi recalled from Rockford to be the backup.
