Michal Macho is done for the season. Dan Spang’s back problems will likely be an issue all year long. Grant Stevenson can’t seem to get better and Collins injured his groin in his first game after arriving from the ECHL. Glenn Olson, who was hurt in a fight with Trevor Gillies in Portland, also missed yesterday’s game.
