Already without their top forward and the reigning Norris Trophy winning defenceman, the Ottawa Senators hope they've avoided a serious injury to the league leader in goals-against average.
During the third period of Thursday night's 3-2 win
over the New York Rangers, Ottawa goaltender Craig Anderson was crashed into by New York's Chris Kreider at 18:17 of the third period and keeled over, lying face first in obvious pain on the ice while the trainer attended to him.
Kreider was heading to the net and got tangled up with Senators defenceman Marc Methot, taking out the goalie and forcing him out of the game with an ankle injury.
Ottawa head coach Paul MacLean showed some optimism as he told reporters after the game his goaltender was day-to-day.
How will the Senators respond to their injuries? Let us know in the comments section below.
