The Calgary Flames received some much-needed good news Friday as defenceman Robyn Regehr's foot injury was not as serious as originally thought.
After Regehr was examined Friday, a Flames spokesman said the diagnosis was a bone bruise and tissue damage in his left foot, which he sustained taking a shot off that foot in the second period of Thursday's 3-2 shootout loss to Pittsburgh.
It was initially believed that Regehr had suffered a fracture.
Regehr is listed as day-to-day.
The Flames, losers of five of their last six games, embark on a six-game road trip starting Sunday in Chicago.
