Boll and Modin questionable for Saturday

According to the Dispatch blog both Boll and Modin are questionable for Sunday's game against Colorado:

Right winger Jared Boll suffered a muscle strain in the back of his left shoulder during a fight Wednesday against Phoenix's Daniel Carcillo. He missed practice to have X-rays but showed up a little while later and said, again, that he was fine.

Left winger Fredrik Modin has a slight groin strain. He didn't skate. Coach Ken Hitchcock hopes to have him practice on Friday. A decision will be made then as to whether Modin plays in Colorado.

I would list Modin and Boll as questionable. If they can't go, Jody Shelley and Curtis Glencross will see their first action of the season.

I have a feeling both of these guys will play on Saturday. Boll sounds like he's not to worried about his injury but the Modin groin situation could be a bit more dicey as to heal properly you've got to give it some time to heal.

If Modin can't go expect Curits Glencross to get the nod. If Boll is out then Shelley should be in.

I really hope Boll can go b/c who wouldn't like to see a Boll / Lapperriere showdown?
