Rangers' Powe leaves Game 3 with injury

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers forward Darroll Powe left Monday's Game 3 of the team's Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series against the Washington Capitals in the first period.

Powe appeared to be in great pain after taking Capitals forward Joel Ward into the boards in the Rangers' zone 8:23 into the period. After spending a few seconds prone on the ice, Powe skated in obvious discomfort to the bench and did not return after playing only 2:33.

Washington Capitals defenseman John Erskine also appeared to be hurt following a hard hit from Ryan Callahan in the Washington end with 4:23 remaining in the opening period. Callahan knocked Erskine down in the corner and the Capitals defenseman did not return in the opening period. But, he did return in second.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
