Kaleta the latest injury

Patrick Kaleta was absent from the morning skate today and will miss tonight's game against Nashville with what coach Lindy Ruff termed a "head/neck" injury suffered on the heavy hit he took early in the third period Saturday from Montreal's Andrei Kostitsyn. Ruff made it sound like Kaleta will be in the week-to-week mode.

Ales Kotalik (hamstring) will be back in the lineup to take Kaleta's spot and Ruff said Andrew Peters will dress on the fourth line with Kotalik and Adam Mair. It looks like Maxim Afinogenov will once again be a healthy scratch. The rest of the lines are intact: Stafford-Roy-Vanek, Paille-MacArthur-Mancari; Gaustad-Hecht-Pominville.
