Jaw injuries are wreaking havoc on the Northeast Division.
Buffalo’s been missing its leading scorer Thomas Vanek for some time now and might not get him back for another couple of weeks because of a jaw problem. And today the Ottawa Senators learned that captain Daniel Alfredsson is going to be out at least a week after he was hit by a shot by teammate Dany Heatley Tuesday against Colorado, as Chris Stevenson in the Ottawa Sun reports.
MK: Just when the “Miracle Senators” were rolling down the highway to salvation they blow a tire (or at least lose a key piston). This just means the Senators can come back to reality and focus on the lottery.
