Right winger Marian Hossa, making his Penguins debut after being acquired from Atlanta at the trade deadline Tuesday, sprained the medial collateral ligament in his right knee and is expected to miss about a week.
Hossa has had a knee injury before, so we suppose that information has immediately been released about just a sprain and an early window of one week isn't the worst thing that could have happened.

For most teams this would easily be the #1 line on their team...For the Penguins it'll be injured players skating with each other before practice. Not to mention Adam Hall, Mark Eaton, Rob Scuderi....
Time to regroup and push forward. The Pens will have to hang in their until the reinforcements trickle in.
And when they do, you can bet it will be the opponents that are hurting.
