Just a muscle strain for Olli?

Officially, Olli Jokinen is listed as day-to-day.

Rumour around the Flames camp has it the 31-year-old suffered a minor muscle strain Tuesday night and an injury update from the team Wednesday afternoon lists Jokinen as day-to-day.

He played three shifts in the second period before heading to the locker-room for the night.

The Flames are lacking depth down the middle these days, with Daymond Langkow still recovering from a neck injury suffered late last season, and Matt Stajan out indefinitely with a separated shoulder.
