Weight, three others confirmed with swine flu

Newday's Katie Strang (as per a note from Chris Botta) is reporting that Doug Weight had swine flu, causing him to miss the last three games.  He's expected to play tonight.

Over the last 24 hours, three other NHLers have also been confirmed as having H1N1:
Quintin Laing of the Capitals, Edmonton's Ladislav Smid and Avalanche goalie Peter Budaj.
