However, as is customary for seemingly every injury, head coach Mike Babcock assured us that “it’s not too serious.”
Mike Babcock on Leo Komarov: "I think he's going to be fine. Lower body injury. I just saw him a second ago walking around, he tells me he did good in all the tests, so I don't know if that means missing a game or playing the next game."

The silver lining in Komarov’s injury is that it could allow for more playing time for Andreas Johnsson, who was scratched last night after making his NHL debut on Wednesday night.
