Blues' Halak leaves after collision

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis goalie Jaroslav Halak departed Saturday night's game against the San Jose Sharks after a second-period collision with a teammate.

Defenseman Barret Jackman crashed into Halak after a sliding attempt to break up a pass play to San Jose's Martin Havlat 1:07 into the second period in Game 2 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

Halak went down, got to his knees and onto his skates without help and appeared to be staying in the game -- but then skated off on his own power to the Blues' dressing room. He was replaced by Brian Elliott.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
