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

I think when you build a team, you look at pairs, and I think the pair of [Voracek and Giroux] is very good, certainly one of the top pairs in the League.
