Injury Update - Koivu OUT Until Playoffs

The news is out on Saku Koivu - well, sort of.

Koivu was examined and it has been determined that he has a break in a small bone in the left foot, and the injury will force Saku to miss the final 3 games on the regular season schedule. Carbonneau said that if Koivu can get a skate on his foot without pain come game 1 of the playoffs, he will leave the decision up to the captain whether to play or not.

Further tests will be taken on Koivu tomorrow and more details will be released at that time, so the waiting game continues.

Mikhail Grabovski will lineup in Koivu's spot on the second line.

Mark Streit and Guillaume Latendresse resumed practising today and both are probable for action tomorrow night in Ottawa.

Francis Bouillon is listed as day-to-day, but it doubtful to go tomorrow.

Mike Komisarek resumed skating for the first time since his injury on March 20th, and is very optimistic of a return for the beginning of the fact, he guaranteed it.
