Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul will be sidelined for three to four weeks with a separated shoulder.
Lupul, second in scoring for the Leafs with 25 goals and 42 assists in 66 games, by a check from David Krejci in Tuesday’s 5-4 loss to the Boston Bruins.
Forward Colby Armstrong was also injured in the game, breaking his nose in a fight with Dennis Seidenberg. He’s listed as day-to-day.
It’s possible Lupul may not see much more action this season with Toronto’s final regular-season game scheduled for April 7. The Leafs head into Wednesday’s game in Pittsburgh five points back of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
