Just a quick link-check from the infirmary...

The newest of member of the Cats' wounded list is gritty Gregory Campbell, who received a puck to the face courtesy of Brian Pothier in last night's loss to Washington. Coach Pete DeBoer referred to the injury as a "significant cut" and held a stitched Soup from the third period (which no doubt benefitted Campbell's plus-minus for the evening). Given the Panthers don't play again until Thursday it would seem doubtful he'll miss any time, barring further undisclosed damage.

As of Friday, winger David Booth remained planted on an exercise bike, though for no more than 10 minute stretches. Sayeth The Dood: "This is the longest I've ever gone without doing anything. I don't like it, but it is part of the process and you have to stick with the program." Various reports have his concussion-related symptoms retreating, but the Cats are taking absolutely no chances with their star forward.

Did you know Dominic Moore's brother is an author? No, not that brother. Meanwhile, nothing new from Dom, who still wasn't skating through Thursday following nasal surgery.

Penalty-killing-guru Radek Dvorak found his way to the ice on Friday - and skated on it. Great news for a guy who just two weeks ago suffered an MCL tear. Shoot for a potential return to the lineup Thursday, says the Sun-Sentinel. Pointless trivia: Booth, Moore, and Dvorak all sustained their issues in the infamous Philadelphia fiasco.

Forward Kamil Kreps skipped the Washington trip altogether with a "bruised foot" (is that better or worse than a "lower body injury"?) but also hopes for a Thursday return.

Remember Nick Tarnasky? Neither do we, but the left wing remains out with a busted orbital bone sustained in a preseason fight with Ottawa's Chris Neil. Looks to be quite a while longer, according to DeBoer several weeks ago.
