MONTREAL (AP) -Montreal Canadiens left wing Travis Moen was cut on the face by the skate of Ottawa's Matt Cullen during the second period of Monday night's game at Bell Centre.
Moen suffered a laceration to his face 10:41 into the second when he was struck there by the blade of Cullen's skate after the Senators forward was upended along the boards in the left corner of Ottawa's zone. Moen was trailing blood as he was rushed off the ice by trainer Graham Rynbend.
A Canadiens spokesman said that Moen would not return to the game, though he was not expected to need to go to hospital for any further medical attention.
When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
