Here's the Team 1040 link, with audio from AV's press meeting today. It sounds like neither will join the team on their upcoming 5 game roadtrip, and Chris Higgins is 'hopefully' to be healthy by the playoffs. Dale Weise will step up to take his role tomorrow against the Flames.
Ed. note: Thank you Jezz for pointing these injuries out. Hearing that Dale Weise will step in for Higgins does not exactly thrill me. Maybe Derek Roy will make Weise back into a Dutch Gretzky.
Losing Chris Tanev's presence on the blue line really sucks. Period.
TSN's Farhan Lalji had this to say today on Twitter:
But remember: the closer it gets to playoff time, the less the coach's say about player injuries.
