Blackhawks winger Tuomo Ruutu injured his left knee after taking a hit from Blue Jackets defenseman Rostislav Klesla midway through the 3rd period of Chicago's 5-2 win Friday night in Columbus. Blackhawks coach Trent Yawney could not specifiy the extent of Ruutu's injury until the club's medical staff examines him Saturday morning in Chicago. "It was a real questionable hit that I'm sure the league will review, and I've got my fingers crossed everything will be OK," Yawney told chicagoblackhawks.com after the game. Klesla was called for clipping and given a 5 minute major plus another 5 minute major for fighting when Hawk defenseman Duncan Keith jumped in to deliver some blows in defense of his teammate. Keith was ejected from the game after being slapped with a 2 minute instigator penalty, plus 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct, 5 minutes for fighting and a 10 minute game misconduct.continued update 5:04pm, via TSN,
