Mixed news on Kronwall
The good news is that defenseman Niklas Kronwall skated today for the first time since spraining his shoulder last week. And Kronwall will travel with the team to Minnesota to skate some more.
The bad news is that after looking at new MRIs yesterday, team doctors have told Kronwall he'll be out longer than the original prediction of 10 days.
"It'll probably be a little bit longer than 10 days," said Kronwall. "We'll just have to go from how the rehab goes and how it feels on the ice, try to think positive and go from there. ... Obviously you don't want to do anything stupid to re-injure it and miss more games."
