Bruce, Michael Farber's reporting Datsyuk is definitely out. Can you confirm?

I cannot confirm. But as I posted earler, there was no Datsyuk equipment in a locker stall after the morning skate. That was a pretty good sign.

Thanks. Agreed. I don't suppose there's any word on whether it's a bruise or a fracture?

Nope. They haven't said for sure if he's in or out tonight. They're definitely not saying what the injury is.

They wouldn't answer dead or alive right now. Although Pavel dead still wouldn't be the worst stick handler in the league.
