Willie Mitchell was not available for comment after the game, and Terry Murray was typically vague about the nature of the “upper-body” injury, but just to quell any speculation, the injury did not take place as a result of a hit to Mitchell’s head. Murray claimed to not even have seen the injury take place.
“It was right down, on my right, in their zone, in the second period,” Murray said. “So it was on the other side of their bench. I don’t have much of a view there, unless I glance up to the clock.”
