Montreal Canadiens forward Mike Cammalleri will miss 10-14 days and defenceman Jaroslav Spacek will be sidelined 2-3 weeks, according to coach Jacques Martin.

Both players were hurt during Sunday's game in Winnipeg. Cammalleri's leg was cut by a skate blade while Spacek has an upper-body injury.

"Cammalleri is recovering well," Martin said. "It's just a question of giving the cut enough time to heal. Luckily there's no damage to the muscles, nerves or tendons, but it was still a deep cut. Our doctors will reevaluate the injury on Saturday.

"(Spacek) is still in a significant amount of pain right now and it looks like it's going to be about two to three weeks. It's still a little early to make that prediction though."

Centre Lars Eller appears set to rejoin the lineup while winger Aaron Palushaj was called up from Hamilton.
