Forsberg Failure?

Just a week into the Peter Forsberg experiment,  it appears to be going South.  Forsberg has missed the Avs last two games due to a groin injury which proves it is more than his ankle that will have trouble keeping up in the NHL. 

Forsberg has always had trouble staying the lineup and missed most of this season due to a recurring ankle injury.  In a surprise move he signed with the Avs days after saying he would not play in the NHL this year. 

I personally think the signing was a poor decision as Colorado has had no trouble scoring goals, and at the time were getting their injured stars back.  Who knows though, only time will tell if this was a good or bad decision for the Avs.

Pittsburgh Penguins fans got a scare in last nights game against the Boston Bruins as Marian Hossa was injured early in the second period after a knee on knee hit with a Boston player. 

He joins Sidney Crosby and Gary Roberts on the Pens injured reserve. 

He is expected to only miss a week however which is good news for a team which gave up its future for Hossa for a chance at the present.

Pittsburgh lost the game 5-1.
