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.
