It appears that Justin Williams’ recent bad luck with injuries has struck again.

“He walked on that bus last night and he looked about as low as a man can,” said Coach Paul Maurice of Williams. “The especially painful part is that over the last three or four games, his speed was coming back. He was skating last night and he was really moving, and I think he really felt that finally something positive [was happening]. To have that happen is going to be very difficult for him.”
Patrick Eaves moved up to Williams’ spot on the right side of Matt Cullen and Ray Whitney for Monday’s practice, leaving Eaves’ usual spot on the fourth unit open for now. A decision will be made soon as to which player the Canes will summon from Albany of the AHL.
Tim Gleason, who is also dealing with a hand injury, sat out practice on Monday but is considered day-to-day and possible for tomorrow’s game against Boston.
