Default Smyth scan shows only strain


The medical news regarding Avalanche winger Ryan Smyth seemed to be positive today.

Smyth has a strained neck, the Avs said, and it is hoped the star left winger will be out of the lineup for only a few more days.

That is the hope, anyway.

But the Avs said tests on Smyth's neck did not indicate anything more serious than a strain. He will not play tonight against the New York Rangers, nor will captain Joe Sakic and four other regulars because of injury. Sakic will miss his 11th straight game because of a groin injury, and he did not skate today.

Rookie David Jones, recalled from Lake Erie of the American Hockey League Thursday, will play his first NHL game against the Rangers.
