“I’m just happy to be here and watch these guys play hockey. I was at my girlfriend’s house in Windsor and I got the call. Obviously, there’s a lot of excitement and a really long day yesterday but I’m here now, so it’s good.” –Troy Passingham
That quote comes from Khan(!) who posted while it was still up in the air whether or not Osgood would be placed on injury reserve. Well that’s academic now. Ozzie is back on IR. Joey MacDonald is recalled, but won’t be dressing tonight, as this 20 year old kid will be backing up Jimmy Howard.
Here’s what Tick Tock had to say to the Detroit News:
“We don’t know Chris’ status heading into the playoffs. He continues to experience soreness; we have to get him healthy. Right now, he’s not close.” –Ken Holland
This is a bummer…but not devastating. Our play-off aspirations are pretty much set, and this team will go as far as Jimmy Howard will allow once the post-season comes around.
Goodbye, Ozzie. Hello, Troy Passingham.
