Brian Gionta has a torn bicep muscle, will undergo surgery on Friday, and that’s it for him.
So Kevin Weekes was dead-on when he said recently on HNIC that this would happen.
It’s the same sort of thing Gionta did last year.
The team also said that Brandon Prust and Ryan White would sit out game 5 with upper body injuries, while Carey Price remains day to day with a lower body problem.
It’s all lousy news, except that Lars Eller has begun skating again, which is great news.
I’m going to keep hoping and cheering through all this. I wouldn’t be a good fan if I didn’t.
