Jets' Kane leaves game with lower-body injury

PHILADELPHIA -- Winnipeg Jets forward Evander Kane left the game Friday against the Philadelphia Flyers late in the first period with what the team announced as a lower-body injury and will not return.

Kane exited the game after Philadelphia defenseman Braydon Coburn hit him along the boards. Kane, who missed two games with an injury earlier this month, skated one 52-second shift early in the second period before leaving the game.

Kane is tied for second on the Jets with seven goals, but has only one in his past 13 games.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
