Jesper Fast's season is most likely over.
Coach Alain Vigneault said the gritty winger was dealing with a bad groin that could keep him out of the final three games of the season, starting tomorrow night in New Jersey against the Devils.
"I know he's going to try real hard to come back," Vigneault said, "but I would not count on it."
Mats Zuccarello also may miss time over the final week as Vigneault said he was undergoing a MRI after blocking several shots "during the last couple games" that has left the winger "having a tough time walking."
Vigneault said he is "not counting on" Zuccarello, who leads the club with 36 assists and 52 points, to play tomorrow against the Devils in Newark.
