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.
We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.
