Shoulder injury shelves Canadiens' Metropolit
Glen Metropolit, one of the more pleasant surprises this season, will miss at least the next two weeks with an injured left shoulder.

Metropolit, who leads the team with 10 power-play goals, was injured in the third period of Saturday's game against New Jersey, when Devils forward Rod Pelley hit him with a clean, shoulder-to-shoulder check. Metropolit immediately left the game, and according an MRI revealed the injury. According to the Montreal Gazette, Metropolit will miss at least 6-8 weeks with a torn muscle in the shoulder.

"Glen will be out for the rest of the regular season," coach Jacques Martin told the team's Web site. "He has more tests to undergo which will give us a better idea, but he's definitely out for the next two weeks."

Metropolit is in the midst of a career season, with his 16 goals a career high. He's also a major reason the Canadiens went into Tuesday's games with the second-best power play in the NHL.
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
