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.
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.
