Carolina's Jeff Skinner leaves with injury

OTTAWA -- Forward Jeff Skinner left the Carolina Hurricanes' game against the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place with an upper-body injury and will not return.

Ottawa defenseman Jared Cowen, making his season debut with the Senators after requiring surgery in November to repair a torn labrum in his left hip, leveled Skinner at the 13-minute mark of the first period.

Skinner, who has a history of concussions, held his head as he lay on the ice, but managed to get up and skate off under his own power.

No penalty was assessed on the play.

Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
