Kane injured in Chicago
Just 23 seconds into Sunday night's home game against Calgary, forward Patrick Kane appeared to injure his left leg after falling and sliding into the boards
CHICAGO -- The last thing the Chicago Blackhawks needed was another injured star player to deal with, but it looks like that might be the case.
 
Just 23 seconds into Sunday night's home game against Calgary, forward Patrick Kane appeared to injure his left leg after falling and sliding into the boards inside the Flames' zone. He was also checked on the play, but appeared to have already fallen by the time Flames defender Cory Sarich came along.
 
Kane stayed on the ice in pain as trainers came out to attend to him. They helped him up and helped him off the ice, with Kane unable to put his full weight on the left skate.
 
Kane is one of Chicago's hottest players, having scored 15 points in his last 13 games and has 27 points (11 goals) overall. The Hawks are already without injured star forward Marian Hossa for roughly 2-3 weeks with a lower-body injury.
 
It was announced during the first intermission that Kane suffered a lower-body injury and that he would not return to Sunday's game.
Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
