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.
I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
