from Ed Moran of the Philadelphia Daily News,
The latest news concerns goalie Antero Niittymaki. According to Holmgren, Niittymaki suffered a groin injury in the shootout loss in Los Angeles on Saturday night. The injury was not disclosed right away and he did not leave the game, playing injured in the overtime and shootout.
But he is doubtful for tomorrow night in Washington and the team will not say anything more before today at the earliest. Scott Munroe will be called up from the Phantoms to take Niittymaki’s place on the bench, but for how long no one knows.
“The fact that he stayed in the game, played the overtime and participated in the shootout should mean that it’s not that serious,” Holmgren said. “I just hope it’s not his hip.”
