Van Ryn probably out a month
Leafs defenseman Mike Van Ryn will be OUT for about one month following a vicious check from behind from Habs forward Tom Kostopoulos during yesterday's contest.
Van Ryn suffered a concussion, a broken nose and a broken hand.
Kostopoulos felt very bad after as he didn't want to hurt Van Ryn who turned his back to Kosto just before he got checked into the boards face first similar to Randy Jones' hit on Patrice Bergeron last season.
Kostopoulos received a 5 minute major for boarding and was ejected from the game.
Expect Kostopoulos to receive a 2 or 3-game suspension for this act.
