Homer to miss 3-4 weeks

Feeling good about Z and Buckets coming back tonight? Good. Because here’s this:

Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Holmstrom will be out for 3-4 weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his foot, general manager Ken Holland said today. The injury happened after Wednesday’s practice at the Honda Center in Anaheim, when Holmstrom was working on deflecting pucks, like he does after virtually every practice. 

Why not? It has become (nearly) comical.

Obviously, either Ville Leino or Brad May will be re-inserted into the lineup for tonight’s game against the Kings. It will say quite a bit about Ville Leino if Brad May is in for the second game in a row, and Leino’s in the Lounge.
