I was always under the impression "charley horse" was merely slang for a muscle cramp. And if so... how does that take someone like Clutterbuck out for half a game *and* put on a day-to-day status? Am I missing something here? We were at the X for the Wild/Flames game, we saw that hit, and I've never seen Cal drop his stick and scurry off so quickly. He could barely put any weight on his left leg. We overheard someone mention that he may have caught a blade just above the knee and below the breezer, and gotten cut as a result. If so, and he re-opened the wound when he tried to come back on the ice, I could understand him being taken off the ice for the rest of that game, and even being put on day-to-day until things healed up again.
So I'm wondering, what would be the purpose of glossing over this injury if it *is* more severe? What's the point?
(I'm assuming #22 will not be on the ice tonight against Florida, since they've called Kalus up from Houston and he plays that position.)
Of course, I could be completely off base and making mountains of molehills....
