As @FriedgeHNIC noted, specifics hard to come by on #preds goaltender Juuse Saros - but sounds like original injury prognosis was less than encouraging.— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) April 27, 2022
You never know in playoffs, but fair to say there is real doubt as to whether Saros will be available for Round 1.
With the Preds either taking on the Avs or the Flames in the first round, this is either going to be a hilarious bloodbath or a hilarious fright for a heavily-favored team.
