Buffalo Sabres forward Jason Pominville suffered a concussion during the first period of Monday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks at HSBC Arena.

Pominville, 27, did not have the puck when he was driven into the boards by Chicago defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson. The Swedish blueliner was given a five-minute major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

Pominville, who did not go to the hospital, will not return to the game.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
