Maple Leafs' Lupul sustains groin injury
Toronto Maple Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul left the game Monday against the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second period with a groin injury.

Toronto Maple Leafs winger Joffrey Lupul left the game Monday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Air Canada Centre in the second period.

Lupul sustained a groin injury and did not return to the ice for the third.

"Sore groin, so I don't know what that means," Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. "He just said he pulled his groin."

Lupul, 30, missed two games last month with a bruised foot. He has eight goals and seven assists in 22 games this season.

Toronto lost to Columbus, 6-0.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
