"Carey was not responding all that well to treatment so he was a bit worried," Therrien said. "It happens often; there aren't two athletes who respond the same way to treatment. So he asked to get a second opinion on his injury. He went to see the doctor yesterday in New York, and the good news is he got the same diagnosis. We see that as very good news.
"He won't play this week but we expect him to respond better to treatment and to be able to get back on his skates and back in net for us pretty soon."
