Blake to miss games this week
Blake was injured when teammate Devin Setoguchi's slap shot hit him in the foot during the Sharks' loss at Vancouver on Saturday night. X-rays and further tests this week uncovered no serious damage, but Blake's foot still is sore.
The 39-year-old is having an outstanding first season with the Sharks, with nine goals and 30 assists in 62 games. He has a plus-18 rating and 99 penalty minutes for the Sharks, who began Tuesday in a tie with Detroit for the Western Conference lead.
