Injuries and Downie, Smaby called up



So it appears David Koci hit New York's Colton Orr so hard with a couple punches Wednesday night, he broke a hand and is out two to four weeks. Wing Matt Pettinger sprainedd a ligament in his right knee and is out for two to four weeks. Defenseman Marek Malik sustained a lower-body injury against New York and is questionable

The corresponding moves, with Koci and Pettinger presumed on injured reserve to clear roster space: right wing Steve Downie and defenseman Matt Smaby from AHL Norfolk were called up. Tampa Bay also put wing Jason Ward on recall waivers and Norfolk defenseman Andrew Hutchinson on regular waivers.

Now, I'm taking the rest of the day off.
