Dom's knee is sore

Goalie Dominik Hasek said after Tuesday's practice that a spot just above his left knee is painful from taking a shot there during the Edmonton game. Hasek participated in the full practice.
"It's only a bruise, but a little painful," said Hasek. "I'll see how it feels (Wednesday). It hit me right above my kneecap. … It wasn't a hard shot, but it caught me in the right spot. It's painful today."
Hasek pointed to a spot above his pads that when he kneels has a small unprotected spot. Why there's an unpadded spot on a goalie's legs ... your guess is as good as mine.
If Hasek can't start Wednesday against Calgary, Chris Osgood will be in net.
Coach Mike Babcock said that he wasn't aware of any injury to Hasek.
