Matt Cullen's season may have ended in Wild's loss at Buffalo

Another game, another casualty for the Wild.
Besides the loss – a 3-1 defeat to Buffalo – Matt Cullen told me after the game he broke his right index finger when he blocked Christian Ehrhoff’s shot with 4 ½ minutes left in the game. The injury and reaction afterward looked so similar to Mikko Koivu’s broken finger last year.

It’s amazing how hard some shots are that can be absorbed by players if they’re hit in the right place, yet so often these little flip shots hit the glove and boom, players around the league are lost with broken fingers or hands. It just hits that perfect soft spot in the glove.

Obviously, if Cullen’s right, he’s likely done for the year. Regardless, the finger was blue and he couldn’t bend it after the game, so the Wild will have to recall a forward on emergency conditions for Sunday’s game in Washington (4 p.m., NBC Sports Network, tell your friends).

Every game, it’s somebody else lost. Last game it was Jared Spurgeon to a concussion.
“I’m so sick of talking about injuries, it’s ridiculous,” coach Mike Yeo said. “We still have to play hockey games. It stinks to lose Matt Cullen, it stinks we have guys out of the lineup. But we have a job to do. Let’s do it.”
