Silver Nuggets: Volchenkov out three weeks, Elliott starts again

Not too many headlines today, because I'm a bit short on time:

  • We already know Anton Volchenkov is out for tonight's game with an elbow injury, but it looks like he could be out more than three weeks. Ouch. (National Post)
  • Goalie Pascal Leclaire won't play tonight because of the flu, so Brian Elliott gets a chance in back-to-back games. (Sens Twitter)
  • Prediction panel for tonight: I predicted the unthinkable (again). (Citizen)
  • Centre/winger Jesse Winchester is... enjoying?... his time in the AHL? Well, two points (1G, 1A) in two games probably goes a long way there. (Press & Sun Bulletin)
  • UPDATE: I know you're all looking forward to the Subway Super Series, in which Canada's best young (under 19) players face off against their peers from Russia, and I have good news: Sens prospect Jared Cowen has made Team WHL. (OurSportsCentral)
  • UPDATE: Erik Karlsson got to Binghamton today, and he'll be wearing number 15 for the B-Sens. I wonder if he'll pick up that number when he comes back to Ottawa; it's not like anyone else wears it anymore. (Sharp on the Sens)
