Habs' Gionta out indefinitely after biceps surgery

Montreal captain Brian Gionta had successful surgery Wednesday to repair a tear in his right biceps, and the Canadiens say he'll be out indefinitely.

Gionta left in the third period of Tuesday's game with what the team called an upper-body injury. Tuesday was Gionta's second game back from a groin injury that cost him 11 games, and as he went to the locker room television cameras caught him throwing his stick out of frustration.

Quote of the Day

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
