Maple Leafs forward Winnik taken off ice on stretcher

Rick Sadowski  - Correspondent

DENVER -- Forward Daniel Winnik sustained a head injury early in the first period of the Toronto Maples Leafs' 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche at Pepsi Center on Thursday but should be fine, coach Randy Carlyle said.

"It’s one of those situations where you’re expecting a lot worse and he isn’t any worse for wear," Carlyle said.

Winnik was taken off the ice on a stretcher after landing on his head while still wearing a helmet following a collision at center ice with Avalanche defenseman Jan Hejda just across the Colorado blue line 45 seconds into the game.

Winnik didn't appear to be moving as he lay on the ice and was being attended to by medical staff, but he was blinking his eyes and moving the fingers on his right hand after being strapped to the stretcher.

"After I just watched it I didn’t think it was that bad," Carlyle said. "The bad part about it was he was out of it. He didn’t move. That left everybody gasping.

Gustavsson, 30, will have X-rays and be evaluated Friday. He was injured reaching for a rebound before Derick Brassard scored 1:50 into overtime to give the Rangers a 4-3 win. He made 26 saves in his first start in five games.

Howe improving in recovery from stroke, son says

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Gordie Howe continues to show improvement in his fight to recover from a stroke he had Oct. 26. He is recovering and rehabilitating in Lubbock, Texas, where his daughter, Cathy, lives.

Mark Howe, Gordie Howe's son and a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, said Wednesday prior to the game between the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden that his father walked approximately 50 feet with assistance from his son Murray on Tuesday.

Mark said Gordie Howe could barely lift his right foot last week.

"When Marty and I got in there on Tuesday (of last week) he was happy to see us and he had a smile on his face, but basically you put your hand against his foot and he couldn't push, couldn't resist," Mark said. "His right arm began to move just a little bit, but basically his whole right side was shut down. My younger brother Murray stayed until today, sent me a video clip, and my dad walked maybe about 50 feet on a walker with Murray on his side, big-time assistance. But from what I saw a week ago, I think it's just tremendous."
