Hockey Inside/Out reports that Andrei Markov won’t play tonight against the Senators because of an upper-body injury. Well, we got three games out of him after a year and half which is more than what some thought.
The only time I saw Markov receive some sort of injury in the last game was when he took a puck in the mouth. Is that the upper-body injury? Or is that a lower-face injury?
There’s been no shortage of folks who have believed all along that this guy is completely injury-prone and we shouldn’t be relying too heavily on him, and maybe they’re right. Or are the Canadiens playing games with us? Is he injured? Has his knee problem returned and they’re not telling us? Or is it a real upper-body injury that isn’t serious and we’ll see him back next game?
Three games and he’s out again. It’s giving me upper-head problems.
