"Double-D" gone a month?
The Canadiens are not confirming reports that David Desharnais will be out of action 4 weeks, and could only be ready to return to the playoffs if the Habs go all the way to the final.
The Habs are only saying "lower body injury" but Desharnais is believed to have suffered ACL damage in Game 5 vs. Boston, though he will not require surgery.
Desharnais had not scored a goal and earned only 1 assist in 5 games during the playoffs. In regular season he flashed speed and determination to score 8 goals and 22 points in 58 games, 2nd best among Habs rookies.
