Rangers' Powe leaves Game 3 with injury
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.

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

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.
