Girgensons is suffering from a lower-body injury and has been deemed questionable for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports. While Girgensons missed practice Monday, the team officially said it was due to a maintenance day, making it seem more likely than not he'll be on the ice for Tuesday's contest. However, the team should further update his status at some point following Tuesday's morning skate, which should provide a better indicator of his availability heading into the evening's tilt.
Girgensons potted a pair of goals in Monday's loss to the Rangers. Girgensons was on the ice for the first time in 10 days after dealing with an upper-body injury, and tied the score at the time with a pair of quick strikes in the third period. The 22-year-old has just 10 points on the season though, so these types of nights shouldn't be expected with much regularity.
Girgensons (upper body) will make his return to the lineup Monday against the Rangers, Mike Harrington of Buffalo News reports. Girgensons was expected to rejoin the lineup after skating as the left wing on the second line during Sunday's practice, and that will indeed be the case. Either Philip Varone or Cal O'Reilly will likely get booted out of the lineup with Girgensons' return, but that determination hasn't been made yet.
Girgensons (upper body) is expected to rejoin the lineup for Monday's game against the Rangers, Bill Hoppe of NHL.com reports. Girgensons slotted in as the left wing on the second line during Sunday's practice, and appears set to rejoin the lineup in that spot for Monday's contest. However, the team will need to officially activate him from injured reserve, so expect another update when that happens.
Girgensons (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve. Girgensons, "The Latvian Locomotive" who contributes on both ends of the ice, has missed the past three games with an upper-body ailment. Taking his spot on the roster for the time being is 29-year-old center Cal O'Reilly. Girgensons will be eligible to return for Monday's road game against the Rangers, but it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough to draw into that contest.
