Tarnstrom injured

Dick Tarnstrom injured the MCL in his knee last night during the first period. The Pens played the rest of the game with 5 defensemen as they had scratched Poapst and Melichar.

Preliminary indications are that he may be out 6-8 weeks.

Ouch. That'll hurt the PP a bit, and thus far this season, he's probably been our best D overall... certainly in the offensive end.

Expect that they'll call up someone to take his place, though I would hope if they call up one of the good prospects (like Ryan Whitney or Noah Welch) that they're not just a healthy scratch - they need to play!!
