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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
