    Canada's captain Mike Richards left yesterday's game with an injured knee. Sutter said after the game it is not serious and he is considered day to day, likely to play versus Finland.

    TSN-
    Canadian captain Michael Richards was involved in a collision near the boards late in the first period and left the ice with some difficulty, appearing to have injured his right leg, and head coach Brent Sutter sent him to the showers.

    ''He's going to be fine,'' Sutter said. ''It was more of a precautionary situation.

    ''I thought it was best for him to go get iced down so he's ready for our next game.''

    This team is deep enough to not really miss a beat if one of their guys suffers an injury, but Richards is one of the very few you would want to lose. He is so poised, he has the skill, the desire, the hussle and the leadership that really can't be replaced, in a short tourney like this. A real heart and sole guy who gives it everything he's got on every shift.

    They showed him icing his quad...i figured it was a minor Charley Horse.

    Plus we were up liek 6-0, no need risking it.

    Yeah thank god it's not serious.

    Everyone remembers what happened the last time we lost our captain to injury in this tournament. Hell I think that was against Germany as well, how ironic.

    We need Richards healthy by the playoff round. He is the guy I would put on Ovechkin when we meet the Russkies, be it the semis or the finals.

    Richards is an integral part of Canada's team... I think we could win without him... but if he's in the lineup and we get average goaltending we are the favorite to win this tournament... It means more ice time for the "energy line" and more for crosby and bergeron...

    I hope he's okay though.... he's a major asset and brings alot to the table in a one game final atmosphere...
    Hopefully Barkers back as well..
