Right wing Danny Cleary has had his left knee drained three times over the past month and has received a cortisone shot. But he continues to experience soreness, which is slowing him down. He likely will need surgery after the season. For now, he must manage the pain. He will have it drained again on Sunday in hopes that he’ll feel better during the upcoming three-game trip to California.

–Because of injuries to a few regulars, rookie left wing Gustav Nyquist was called up from Grand Rapids (AHL) and took advantage of his opportunity to play the past two games. He picked up a pair of assists and showed some of the skills that make him the organization’s top forward prospect, one who could be in the NHL full-time next season.
