Maple Leafs' Roman Polak: Remains in hospital

Polak (lower leg) is still in a hospital following surgery, James Mirtle of The Athletic reports. "His rehab is going to be a long time," per coach Mike Babcock.

The Leafs certainly could put the veteran shutdown blueliner to good use as they look to stun the Capitals -- winners of the Presidents' Trophy for the second straight year -- in the conference quarterfinals. Polak doesn't have a clear timeline for his return, but the prognosis certainly sounds bleak based on the latest comment from the bench boss.
