Russo's reporting that both Backstrom and Gaborik are out with groin injuries, after today's practice in Denver.
Gaborik has apparently not felt 100% the past few days.
Demitra is still out.
Obviously this is not good news.
Presume that Schaefer backs up Harding tomorrow. Clutterbuck probably dresses.
Hopefully the Avs will be a little distracted with the World Series...
Well that sucks. What happened to all the off-season stuff that was supposed to make Gaborik all groin-pull proof?
It kind of seems like they're just being extra-precautionary with Gaby right now. Like he doesn't have an "injury" per se, but he's sore and/or uncomfortable so they're going to shut him down until he's right - to try to prevent an actual injury from happening.
