After the game, Blues coach Craig Berube said Binnington was having a lower-body injury evaluated. According to Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic, the Blues fear they could be losing Binnington for multiple weeks due to a possible knee sprain.
Kadri drove to the net trying to grab a rebound and collided with the Blues netminder with 13:17 left in the first period.
After a consultation with a Blues athletic trainer, Binnington left the ice for further evaluation.
Of the collision, Berube said: “Look at Kadri’s reputation, that’s all I’ve got to say.”
Kadri has been suspended six times for a total of 16 playoff and 11 regular-season games in his career.
During a post-game interview with NHL on TNT, Kadri appeared to be distracted by something before telling the broadcast he was “not sure if he just threw a water bother at me or not,” referring to Binnington.
Shortly after word spread on social media, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic, who was at the game as a member of the media, posted a photo of a water bottle.
Husso had not played for the Blues since Game 3 of the Blues' first-round series against the Minnesota Wild.
