Blue Jackets' Anisimov leaves game with injury
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov left in the third period of a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs with an apparent upper-body injury.

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Artem Anisimov left with 9:10 remaining in the third period of a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Monday night with an apparent upper-body injury.

Anisimov was carrying the puck through the neutral zone when he was hit by Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf. Anisimov quickly headed for the dressing room and appeared to be favoring his right arm.

Phaneuf was assessed a two-minute penalty for an illegal check to the head.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
