Preds Defense Corps Looking Thin - Sulzer Recalled

The Nashville Predators have already been with out Shea Weber for a game and a half and now have learned that Denis Grebeshkov will be out for one to two weeks with a lower body injury according to John Glennon's update from today's practice.

John reports that he was injured early in the game and tried to play through the injury. For the game, Grebeshkov played 17 shifts with 11:59 of ice time. He played seven shifts in the first period, six in the second and only four in the third including the one where his collision with J. P. Dumont led to the game winning goal.
