Coach Claude Julien said that goalie Manny Fernandez is experiencing some ''general soreness'' and is likely to miss a few games.

In keeping with the club's secretive policy about injuries, Julien did not divulge any further information, or the specific nature of the ''soreness''.

It is widely believed--though not confirmed--that Fernandez in recent weeks has experienced a recurrence of his back issues, which initially flared up last season.

Tuukka Rask, called up on an emergency basis, will remain with the club during the veteran goalie's ''general soreness.''
