Marleau Considered Day-to-Day

from David Pollak of the Mercury News,

The Sharks came from behind Saturday night to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 at HP Pavilion for a franchise-record 109 points — two more than the Detroit Red Wings in the battle for NHL supremacy with both teams having seven games to play.

But the victory could come at a price as center Patrick Marleau was injured late in the first period, tried a few shifts in the second and did not return.

“I just tweaked something in the lower body and that’s it, that’s all I can give you,” Marleau said after the game. “It was kind of a contact play, but not big contact.”

Coach Todd McLellan described Marleau as day to day, adding he probably would not be able to skate at today’s morning practice before the team leaves for a two-game trip to Calgary and Edmonton.
