After dropping Game 1 of their series with the Detroit Red Wings, the Colorado Avalanche received more bad news on the injury front on Friday.
Forward Wojtek Wolski, who was forced to leave Game 1 after a collision with Detroit centre Johan Franzen, will not play in Game 2 and likely will miss the remainder of the second-round series because of an upper-body injury.
Wolski has scored two goals and added three assists in seven playoff games for Colorado this season.
Peter Forsberg, who was scratched from the series opener with a nagging groin injury, has been listed as questionable for Game 2. The Swedish forward has one goal and four assists in six games during the playoffs.
The prognosis is much better for starting goaltender Jose Theodore (4-3, 2.38 goals against average, 9,26 save percentage). Colorado head coach Joel Quenneville expects Theodore to play on Saturday after being pulled and sent to the hotel during Game 1 because he was sick.
Game 2 of the Avalanche's Western Conference semifinal series with the Red Wings goes Saturday afternoon (3 p.m. ET) at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.
