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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
