Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger caught up with injured defenseman Bryce Salvador prior to Thursday's game against the Flyers. Salvador told Chere the puck that injured him hit where the thumb meets the hand and that further X-rays show nothing is broken. That's good -- but it doesn't mean he'll play again this season.
We've been saying for the past week that Salvador should be shut down and this seems like pretty strong confirmation that he will be. It's the right decision.
