Modano to be X-rayed Monday, Lehtinen to make road trip but both doubtful for Tuesday.

Mike Modano was seen leaving the game late in the third period last night favoring his midsection and today we now have a better understanding why.  As per Richard Durrett of ESPNDallas.com and Mark Stepneski of Andrew's, Modano missed practice this morning and will be undergoing some X-rays Monday to see if there are any further issues and if the injury is more serious than first thought.

Modano did manage to return for the shootout but looked quite stiff taking his shot and the shot itself lacked the trademark speed he usually displays.  Any kind of injury to the ribs certainly would be a good reason for that to happen.

Modano's status for the upcoming road trip is of course in question.

In other team injury news, Jere Lehtinen will be making the road trip but still might be held out of the Tuesday game against the OilersBrad Richards is still fighting off a groin issue and sat out practice this morning; he should be fine for the Oiler game however.
