Brad Richards' upper body injury is related to his neck and back.
Richards isn't expected to play on Thursday. The injury stems from Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta hit from behind on Sunday, but the good news is Richards doesn't appear to have a concussion. "It's not a long-term thing," Richards said. "I went in (to the boards) pretty hard. I've just got to let the body regroup a little bit here ' Obviously, the neck and back are a little locked up."
