No change on Giroux, Couturier day-to-day

Paul Holmgren updated the media Sunday on the injury status of both one of his star forwards and the prized prospect expected to fill his void.

Right wing Claude Giroux, who is out with a concussion, was said to have no change in his status -- though some media outlets did report that he skated in Colorado Saturday -- while center Sean Couturier was released from the hospital Sunday and will be re-evealuated Monday. He is considered day-to-day with a head injury.

Couturier left Philadelphia's loss to Boston Saturday afternoon after a shot by teammate Kimmo Timonen hit Couturier behind his left ear late in the first period. Giroux, who is tied with Toronto's Phil Kessel for the League lead in scoring, has not played since suffering a concussion following a collision with teammate Wayne Simmonds on Dec. 10 against Tampa Bay.

Brayden Schenn, who has not played since Dec. 3 due to a mild concussion, had no change in his status.
