Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchene is out for at least a week after he sustained an oblique injury against the Florida Panthers on Saturday.

Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchene is out for at least a week due to an oblique injury. 

This was confirmed by Adrian Dater of the Denver Post on Nov. 18. Duchene suffered the injury during the third period of the Avalanche's 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Nov. 16. Dater wasn't able to add any more details, except to say that any oblique injury in general serves no purpose.

"The usual is all I can report right now: we'll know more tomorrow. I don't want to sound the alarm bell too much, because I don't know the extent of anything as I type. All I know is oblique injuries are not good for hockey players. They can linger on and on, and need full recovery because those are the muscles most used -- are close to it if they aren't -- in skating strides." 

In addition to Duchene, forward Alex Tanguay was placed by Colorado on its injured reserve, prompting the team to recall Brad Malone from the American Hockey League's Lake Erie Monsters

Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy said to "lose Duchene and Tanguay, it creates a hole. You don't replace guys like this. At the same time, it's an opportunity for others."

The loss of the two key players is just the latest blow for Colorado. The team is currently in a three-game losing streak since starting the 2013-14 NHL season 14-2. They will next take on the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks, on Tuesday.

Prior to his injury, the 22-year-old Duchene had been the Avalanche's leading scorer. As of Nov. 19, he has 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points in 19 games.

Blue Jays need to invest more into bullpen

Oct 20 2014 9:14am CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

The race is on. Our best minds are beavering away to find lessons from the post-season success of the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals – particularly, for the Toronto Blue Jays. It’s a tough slog. I mean, how do you quantify some of the magic we’ve seen? And what about those bullpens … I wonder if this is where the real lesson exists for the Blue Jays: The Giants devoted 14.9 percent of their Opening Day payroll to their bullpen while the Royals allocated 20.4 percent. In fact, the 10 ...

No good reason why Gardiner is odd defenceman out

Oct 14 2014 10:52pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

TORONTO — That Randy Carlyle is scratching a defenceman is not a big deal. Rules dictate Carlyle can only dress so much mediocrity at once, so someone has to sit out. The question really is why he keeps picking on Jake Gardiner? And more pressingly: After the Leafs 3-2 overtime win over the Colorado Avalanche improved Toronto to 2-0 with No. 51 watching from the press box, when will he play again? You never mess with a streak, a Maple Leafs winning streak e ...
