What Happened to Post-Season Injuries?

New, comments

Normally there's a slew of injuries announced after a club is eliminated, but all we heard about was Bozak. Were the Leafs really healthy?

Jared Wickerham

After the Caps were eliminated, we got to hear about injuries like Ovechkin's hairline fracture in his foot, and Erat's dislocated elbow. The Bruins weren't even eliminated but after their first round series, we heard about injuries to Redden, Ference, and Sidenberg. But the Leafs? Bozak had a separated bicep and...that's it (aside from Kostka's broken finger and Fraser's broken face). We still don't know what hip issue Gunnarsson played through, or how it will get better. Phaneuf claimed he wasn't injured, but no one really believes it. Grabovski? With his regular "face-in-elbow" routine? Kadri, with his 13:30 ATOI? I'm not saying there has to be a slew of injuries, but if the Leafs really were healthy, there's a story in there, too.
