What the John Tavares Injury Means For the Toronto Maple Leafs

It went from bad, to worse when the Toronto Maple Leafs learnt that Tavares would be out.

In the third period of Wednesday’s 4-3 loss to the Washington Capitals, Morgan Rielly took a slap shot, which went off Tavares’ hand.

Not knowing much Wednesday night, everyone went about their business, until Thursday afternoon:

The @MapleLeafs announced today that centre John Tavares sustained a broken finger late in last night’s game in Washington.

He will be out of the lineup for a minimum of two weeks, at which point he will be reassessed by the team's medical staff.
