Sabres' Thomas Vanek leaves with injury
Buffalo Sabres forward Thomas Vanek limped to the dressing room in the second period of Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens

MONTREALBuffalo Sabres forward Thomas Vanek limped to the dressing room in the second period of Tuesday's game against the Montreal Canadiens after getting hit with a puck during a Buffalo power play.

Vanek was hunched over on the bench in pain after he was hit with the shot by Sabres defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, and went to the dressing room at the next whistle.

The Sabres announced during the second intermission that Vanek suffered an upper-body injury and will not return.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
