According to reports, defenseman Lubomir Visnovsky is heading home to Slovakia to attend to a family tragedy. According to Newsday, this tragedy has nothing to do with his sons health. If you recall, the health of his son was supposedly the reason for him reporting late to the team when the season started.
Him heading home will cause him to miss tonights game against Montreal and Thursdays game against the Rangers. Radek Martinek will replace him in the lineup in these games.
