OTTAWA -- Ottawa Senators defenseman Patrick Wiercioch suffered a lower-body injury during the first period of Game 3 of the club’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinal against the Montreal Canadiens at Scotiabank Place.

According to the Senators, Wiercioch, who was playing in his first postseason game of this series, will not return to the game. The incident occurred at 12:05, when he tripped a Canadiens’ player and appeared to lose his balance as he was turning.

Wiercioch played 1:48 in the game prior to the injury. He had 19 points (five goals, 14 assists) in 44 regular-season games for Ottawa.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
