Salei Out With Broken Orbital Bone

via the LA Times (reg. req.),
Holding an ice pack to his swollen-shut right eye Friday, Mighty Duck defenseman Ruslan Salei put the best possible spin on his injury. "I feel a lot better than I look," Salei said dryly. "You could say it could have been worse." The Ducks won't have the veteran's services for at least the next several days after Salei was hit above the right eye on a shot from San Jose Shark center Joe Thornton in the first period of Anaheim's 2-0 victory Thursday. X-rays revealed a broken orbital bone above the eye. Salei won't be in the lineup for today's game against the Kings at Staples Center or Monday's rematch at the Arrowhead Pond.
