Devils have a new concern

08:29 AM ET 04.04 | A little late-season run has helped the Devils to a three-game winning streak, and they've wrapped up, at least, the No. 6 seed in the East. Their bigger concern now, though, might be staying healthy. By the end of Tuesday's 3-1 victory over the Islanders they were down two forwards. They began the game without 30-goal scorer David Clarkson, who sat out with what the team is calling a "lower-body" injury. Devils coach Pete DeBoer said he expects Clarkson to skate today, but the prognosis is much worse for second-year center Jacob Josefson. The Devils say the injury-plagued 21-year-old will miss four to six weeks with a fractured left wrist accidentally caused by the stick of former Devil Jay Pandolfo 6:33 into the second period.

I hate when they use the cryptic, "lower body injury". What exactly is the big secret? I guess it sounds more manly than , "he has a tuchas injury"

I guess they use that instead of saying he has a left knee injury so he doesn't get targeted? I can't think of any other reason.

maybe. But they do mention those...
I guess it would better than saying "So and So is going to miss a couple of games until the can get the gerbil out"

You're using cocoanuts.

You're not riding horses, you're banging two halves of cocoanuts together.

After reading quotes 3 - 13, a 'lower body injury' is descriptive enough for me.
