Senators' Gonchar to miss Wednesday's game

The Ottawa Senators will be without defenseman Sergei Gonchar for Wednesday night's game against the Montreal Canadiens due to what the team says is a lower-body injury.

Gonchar did not take part in Ottawa's optional skate Wednesday morning, but coach Paul MacLean made no mention of Gonchar's injury during his meeting with the media after the skate.

The 38-year-old defenseman played 25:05 and scored the winning goal with 2:30 remaining in regulation Tuesday night as the Senators beat Washington 3-2.

There is no word on how long Gonchar will be sidelined.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
