Update: During the third period Sportsnet confirmed that Ferland and Jiri Hudler would not be returning. Ferland feeling the ill effects of the hits he was involved in during the first. Hudler, an undisclosed injury at this time.

Micheal Ferland has overcome a lot. He's also accomplished a lot so far in his short but memorable NHL career. Between destroying the Canucks in every way possible in the previous series, he starts this series more on the receiving end.

Early in the first period:

Thanks to Steph Vail for this as it appears Ferland may have been the victim of a bit of whiplash heading in on one of his patented hits.

Ferland did not return for the second period and was reported to be under analysis in the Flames dressing room. The young bruising embodiment of destruction is coming off a fantastic showing agains the Canucks. If he can't go for game two, look to see the possibility of David Wolf making his post-season debut.
