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

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.

— Nashville captain Shea Weber in an interview with the Predators website
