Update on Raf and Pav

Brian Rafalski should be good to go tomorrow against the desperate-for-points Nashville Predators.

Ken Holland told the Free Press that Raf is planning on playing.  He also added:

“Pav is sore but possible for tomorrow.” –Ken Holland

So we can update Pavel from “I don’t know” to day-to-day.  Doesn’t sound too serious…but details are scarce at best.  We’ll need all the healhty bodies we can get to play against teams like Bubba who will be playing their most desperate hockey.  Desperate teams do desperate things like Rick Nash flying around like a wrecking ball last night.  Once we get a little more clearance between us and San Jose, I’ll have no problem with a few call-ups to rest some of the big guns and prevent further injury…

…if we have the Cap space, that is.
