MONTREAL (AP) -The Montreal Canadians top-scorer Michael Cammalleri will be out for about six weeks with a knee injury.

The team announced Tuesday that he won't need surgery.

Cammalleri was injured during a 3-2 overtime loss Saturday in Ottawa when he fell awkwardly into the boards after being hit by Anton Volchenkov.

Cammalleri has a team-leading 26 goals and 48 points in 56 games. The Canadiens will be without him for the first time this season when they host the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

Vancouver will have defenseman Sami Salo back after he missed four games with a groin injury.

The Canucks are still missing defensemen Willie Mitchell, out since Jan. 16 with a concussion, and Kevin Bieksa, who has missed 14 games with a leg injury.

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
