Injury updates from Dr. Darcy

BOSTON -- Is the important news Darcy Regier's intermission injury updates or the fact the black forest cake and chocolate raspberry squares are on the press box dessert cart? (Hmmm..OK, Darcy wins).

The Sabres GM acknowledges Patrick Kaleta is done for the regular season but is hopeful he could be ready for the start of the playoffs.

"The two weeks is a real minimum number so I hope that's all it is," Regier just told me. "I'm planning on two weeks and hopefully it's not more."

The news was pretty positive on both Thomas Vanek and Tim Connolly. It sounds like both should be back in time for the playoffs.

"We're quite hopeful those aren't a longer period of time, Regier said. "Whether it's days or a week, maybe a little more. But that's the timeframe. Tim is pretty similar to that, in that area as well. That's as good as I can do as a doctor right now."
