"Early in Game 3 against the Penguins, Jeff kind of fell into the boards awkwardly and separated his shoulder. It won’t require surgery, but it was enough of an injury it hampered him. He just can’t play right now. He needs to rest it. He’s a tough kid because he kept playing through it. We think it’s between a Grade I and Grade II separation. He’ll need three or four weeks of rest or rehab."
