Monday night around the NHL

1. SAVARD OUT WITH CONCUSSION

The Boston Bruins will be without forward, Marc Savard, for an indefinite period of time: after the veteran was diagnosed on Monday with a moderate concussion. This 33 year-old, who also suffered a major concussion last year, suffered his second one on Saturday afternoon during second period of play against the Colorado Avalanche. Savard, who has two goals and 10 points this season, was injured when Avalanche forward, Matt Hunwick, checked him into the end boards.

2. CROSBY TO MISS NHL ALL-STAR GAME

Pittsburgh Penguins forward,Sidney Crosby, will be staying in Pittsburgh for next weekend’s All-Star Game. According to team GM, Ray Shero, Crosby, who has 66 points, is feeling much better but is not completely over the effects of his January 1 concussion suffered in the game against the Washington Capitals. On Tuesday the 23 year-old will miss his ninth straight start when the Penguins play at home against the New York Islanders. “I know Sidney is very honored to have been selected by the fans to appear in the All-Star Game, and he was happy to attend the festivities two years ago when he couldn’t play because of a knee injury,” Shero said. “However, in this situation – when he has not even skated for two and a half weeks and still has not been cleared to resume physical activity – we think it’s best for him to focus totally on his recovery.”

3. THRASHERS ACTIVATE MODIN

The slumping Atlanta Thrashers, who are barely holding onto a playoff spot, have activated veteran forward, Fredrik Modin, from injured reserve. Without Modin, the Thrashers have gone 1-2-3. This 36 year-old, who is in his 14th season, has played in 29 games this season where he scored seven goals and nine points.
