Blues place goalie Manny Legace on injured reserve with mild concussion

The Canadian Press

ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Blues goaltender Manny Legace has been placed on injured reserve with what the NHL team describes as a mild concussion.

Legace took a knee to the head in the first period of Wednesday's 4-2 loss at Anaheim. The team initially said Thursday that he was day-to-day with the injury. But late Thursday, the Blues announced that Legace had a concussion.

It is the second injury of the season for Legace. In October, he strained his left hip flexor and missed several games when he slipped on carpet placed on the ice for then-vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who was dropping the ceremonial first puck.

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
