This part of the season is where injuries start the creep up. Lots of players fight through them and continue to fight with their teams to make the playoffs. However, some injuries can't be played through. Arnott is fighting a concussion right now, and that's not something to mess with, and it can't be rushed. The Predators should be getting Bonk back tomorrow night against the Ducks.
Injuries are helping the Predators too. Koivu is out for Minnesota, which makes it a little tougher for them. If they struggle and lose some games, we can gain some ground for our playoff run. You never want to see guys get hurt, but some good things can come out of it for other teams.
Let's just hope the Preds stay relatively healthy because we're going to need all the guys being able to give 100% every night if we intend on playing past the first week of April.
