Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell left the game against the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night in the first period with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Bickell was injured with 9:05 remaining in the opening period when he went hard to the net, lost his edge and went crashing into the left post, catching his left leg on the post. He was helped to the dressing room.

Coach Joel Quenneville said after the 5-1 loss that Bickell will be evaluated Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
