Murray, on Simmonds' injury

Here’s what Terry Murray said today about Wayne Simmonds’ injury, starting with the basic question of, “What happened?”

MURRAY: “You know, we really don’t know what happened. It did not happen in the game. There is no specific time or situation. He’s just got a lower-body injury and he’s going to be out a while. He’s going to see our doctors here tonight at the game, and we’ll take it from there.”

Question: It’s a hockey-related injury though, right?
MURRAY: “Yeah, it’s hockey-related. But again, that’s the problem. It’s not anything we can look at, because he finished the game, obviously, and everything was going fine. It’s just something that came on, and it’s a problem for him.”

Question: Sounds like more of a lingering thing, maybe?
MURRAY: “Yeah, it’s going to take some time, I think. I’m going to have a chance to talk to the doctor at the game, and maybe I can get some first-hand information. Not that I’m going to talk about it a lot, but at least have a better idea on the time.”
