Here’s what Terry Murray said today about the status of Kevin Westgarth and Jake Muzzin. Westgarth left last night’s game after his fight with Anaheim’s Brian McGrattan — he took a big punch — while Muzzin has been out of action since he went face-first into the glass after hit from behind by Phoenix’s Mikkel Boedker.
MURRAY: “Westgarth, he’s not going to skate for a couple days. He took that punch to the head, as you saw. We’re just going to hold him off the ice and let him settle for a couple days before getting him going him again.
“(Muzzin is) not OK or he would be out there practicing with the team. No, he’s not doing good. He took a pretty big hit on that play. He banged his head. You can see the mark on his face, where he went into the glass. Again, it’s a lot of precaution. We want to do the right thing and give the players an opportunity to recover and be ready to go at the right time.”
