Update: Vanek Injury Not Serious, but Out 1-2 Weeks
Standard Spin: We've been waiting on the status of Thomas Vanek since he left Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury, and now we have an update. According to BuffaloNews.com, Vanek is believed to have suffered an injury to his shoulder due to a hit from Erik Cole. Sabres coach Lindy Ruff confirmed that Vanek underwent tests, saying, "the results were good to us... It's going to be on the shorter period. There was nothing serious. It could have been more serious than it was. It's going to be a pain-type thing. Let's say a week and maybe it ends up being a little longer."
