Hurricanes place Samsonov on injured reserve
Sergei Samsonov won't be making the Carolina Hurricanes' season-opening trip to Finland.

The team announced Thursday that Samsonov has been placed on injured reserve after he crashed into the boards during a game last Saturday against the Atlanta Thrashers and had to be taken to a hospital on a stretcher.

Samsonov suffered a neck injury and will not travel with the team to Helsinki. He will be reassessed when the Hurricanes return from Europe.

The 31-year-old forward is entering his fourth season with Carolina. He had 14 goals and 29 points in 72 games last season.
Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
