Injury Notes: MacArthur, Lehtonen, Stralman, Richards, Hossa, Murray, Gustavsson, Stastny and Sbisa

  • Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators Clarke MacArthur won’t need surgery to fix his injured tendon in his hand. He suffered the injury fighting Flames Chris Butler. He won’t play tomorrow, and could return next Saturday.

    “The only update I have is they don’t need to do surgery so that’s as positive as it could be,” said coach Paul MacLean before Saturday’s game.

    “It’s more to do with pain threshold and ability to hang onto the stick. Those will be the factors that go into it.”

  • Mike Heika: Stars Kari Lehtonen left after being hit by Erik Haula: “Obviously, it’s not good. He went in hard, hit the crossbar hard. The likelihood is it’s a concussion on just a dirt play. It should be suspended. A fourth liner takes out our goaltender.”

  • Pat Leonard: Rangers coach Alain Vigneault is not concerned about Anton Stralman’s ankle or Brad Richards’ wrist.
  • Scott Powers: Blackhawks Marian Hossa could return to the ice this week and possibly be back in the lineup next week.
  • Rob Mixer: Blue Jackets defenseman Ryan Murray will be out four to six weeks after having knee surgery.
  • Ansar Khan: Red Wings Jonas Gustavsson is out with a sore groin. Petr Mrazek has been recalled.
