Video- Jordan Binnington May Have A Knee Injury

from Jeremy Rutherford of The Athleitc,

Jordan Binnington’s reclamation of the Blues’ starting goaltending position and the rekindling of his 2019 Stanley Cup performance could be over depending on how long St. Louis remains in the postseason.

There’s no definitive word yet, but reliable sources told The Athletic after Binnington left Game 3 in the first period Saturday following a collision that the team feared it might lose him for multiple weeks with a possible right-knee sprain.

If so, the Blues might have to advance to the Western Conference final or perhaps even the Stanley Cup Final for Binnington to return to postseason action, and perhaps even that would be questionable. The club had no update.

I’ve never seen so many goalies demoed in a post season and we just started the 2nd round.  Kadri should be gotten a penalty for that one imo.  Bennington was a problem for Colorado and ran him imo.

from Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet,

This epic battle has reached the attrition stage, with two key pieces landing on the sidelines.

With much of the focus on those injuries and the potential impact they could have on this Central Division playoff series and beyond, some verbal shots got tossed around, the reputation of one of the primary combatants was brought into question and Colorado Avalanche forward Nazem Kadri had a water bottle thrown at him while giving a post-game interview on the TNT broadcast.

Oh, and did we mention the individual who was believed to have tossed the aforementioned water bottle in his direction was none other than injured St. Louis Blues goalie Jordan Binnington?

With everything happening off the ice, it’s important not to forget that it was the Avalanche who came up with the latest roundhouse right in this battle between Western Conference heavyweights, taking a 2-1 series lead after a 5-2 triumph on Saturday night at Enterprise Center.

Going to be a tough road ahead for the Blues if Binnington is out - he’s been stealing games for them.

He wasn’t hauled down or pushed. He just fell so easily right on him. Definitely looks like one of those accidentally on purpose ones

Kadri ran the net on purpose- he was the last one in!

Meh…Kadri went for the puck. It just doesn’t look like anything other than a hockey play. Rosen is more to blame than Binnington.


Also….Binnington doesn’t deserve anyone’s sympathy. Dude swings more lumber for a netminder than Billy Smith.

Er…I meant Rosen is more to blame than Kadri for Binnington getting injured.

This is what I see. He definitely wasn’t pushed and when given the opportunity to connect with Binnington while going for the puck, he rolled over on him.

I’m not sure it’s a penalty or a suspension because it is difficult to prove intent. The injury part is mostly bad luck. That happens in a high speed hockey game.

Maybe now teams will pay more attention to the backup and even 3rd goalie position. I’ll bet we’ll at least see more action with goalie acquisitions at the trade deadline. Frankly it is foolish to have Cup aspirations without a solid backup.

Kadri made contact with Rosen, not
the other way around. I saw Kadri put his shoulder
into Rosen to knock him off balance as they were going in.

The puck was right there coming off as a rebound.
So I can see both players trying to get to the puck.

But how Kadri landed on Binnington is another matter.

The larger problems are the playoff-long injury for Binnington
and Kadri’s rep for losing his composure and making
reckless contact with opponents. Binnington has been kind of a clown at times
with his performative overreactions. But he hasn’t made dangerous contact with an opponent that I’ve seen.
