Three key injuries in the NHL Thursday night that bettors should be aware of:
Ryan Getzlaf, Anaheim Ducks center (doubtful, upper body) - "The straw that stirs our drink" according to coach Bruce Boudreau. Tied as third leading scoring in the NHL.
Mike Green, Washington Capitals defenseman (day to day, lower body) - leads team in minutes played and is a vital part of the power play. 11 points in 19 games.
Jonathan Quick, L.A. Kings goalie (ruled out, groin) - The Kings' backbone and workhorse netminder will be replaced by Ben Scrivens.
