 The injury bugaboo strikes again.

 Calgary Flames defenceman Robyn Regehr left the Saddledome after last night's game wearing a walking cast on his left foot, putting his status for tomorrow night's Game 7 in Tampa in jeopardy.

  Regehr wasn't using crutches to leave, according to sources.

 The Flames wouldn't comment on what caused the injury, what exactly it is or whether he's expected to play.

 It didn't affect his playing time in last night's 3-2 overtime clash, though, since he led all players with 33 minutes 36 seconds of ice time.

 It's just the latest injury to Calgary's Stanley Cup final squad, especially its beleaguered defence corps which is without Denis Gauthier. Toni Lydman returned in Game 5 from a concussion that cost him 20 games.

 If Regehr, who has shown an incredible tolerance to pain throughout his young career, can't play Mike Commodore will step in. The only forward who could possibly return to action in the season finale is Shean Donovan, who missed last night's game due to a lower-body injury suffered in Game 5. The club called it a charley horse but it's suspected to be an injured right knee.
