Player updates

As Will so kindly pointed out in the comments, Mario Lemieux is hospitalized with an irregular heartbeat. He's out for tomorrow's game against Minnesota and is day to day after that.

Jocelyn Thibault appears to be the starter for tomorrow's game. I can't say I understand that - Fleury is playing well and the team is playing well around him. As I said before, Fleury should be playing three of the next four games. Thibault playing tomorrow night virtually guarentees that he'll split the four game set with Fleury. Hopefully Thibault proves me wrong.

Palffy is likely to miss the game tomorrow. He hasn't made it through a practice yet.

Michel Oullet was assigned to Wilkes-Barre after practicing successfully. He had been on injured reserve.

Quick update - according to the Trib, Fleury left practice early yesterday with a stomach ailment.
