Andrew Brunette Injury: Chicago Blackhawks Winger A Gametime Decision Tuesday Night

Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Brunette played only one period against Edmonton last Thursday and skipped Friday's game against Calgary, and he'll be a gametime decision for the team's game against Colorado on Tuesday night. Brunette says the injury healed quickly:

"It’s just the little bumps and bruises you go through during the whole season, the wear and tear that kept me out," Brunette said. "It’s something we all go through and it’s getting better. That’s the important thing. It got better real quick. I’m hoping to play tonight or further down the stretch here."
