How can we break this injury curse??
If you can imagine such a thing, a Penguins player is injured.
According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, Penguins defenseman Zbynek Michalek will be sidelined a month due to a broken finger.
Michalek left in the third period of Saturday's 4-1 win against the Devils after being struck in the right hand by a shot from New Jersey forward Rod Pelley with 9:18 left in the game.
A free agent signing in 2010, Michalek is one of the premier shot-blocking defensemen in the NHL. In 10 games this season, he led the Penguins with 17 blocked shots. Additionally, he recorded three points (one goal, two assists).
