Thoughts on Bjugstad injury

Nick Bjugstad sustained a head injury in double overtime of last night’s game 5 against the New York Islanders. Bjugstad lost a battle with Shane Prince and his head went crashing into the hard part of the boards. He left the game and was down for several minutes. This is a key loss for the Panthers. He has been a beast while Troxheck has been out and in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. My guess is that he will miss about 1 week tops. According to Panthers beat reporters Harvey Fialkov and George Richards he didn’t travel with them to NY. However I think he will be back and hopefully better than ever.
