Oilers' Bachman leaves with groin injury
Edmonton Oilers goaltender Richard Bachman had to be helped off the ice Saturday in the first period of a 5-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings after injuring his groin.

EDMONTON - Edmonton Oilers goaltender Richard Bachman had to be helped off the ice Saturday in the first period of a 5-0 loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

Bachman injured his groin extending his left pad, reaching for the puck.

Bachman was making his third consecutive start since being called up Sunday on from the Oklahoma City Barons.

A free agent signing from the Dallas Stars this summer, Bachman replaced Devan Dubnyk on the Oilers roster. Dubnyk injured his ankle in practice last week.

Bachman was replaced by Jason LaBarbera, who allowed the final three goals.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
