DALLAS -- Edmonton Oilers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov had to leave the game against the Dallas Stars on Sunday late in the second period after a collision with Stars forward Ryan Garbutt.

Bryzgalov, who was starting his third straight game in net for the Oilers, stopped 28 of 29 shots in 36:19. The lone goal was scored by Garbutt, a shorthanded goal, at 11:37 of the second period.

Garbutt collided with Bryzgalov near the far post as he was skating toward the net. Bryzgalov was holding his head while on the ice and after being attended to by the Oilers' medical staff, Bryzgalov left and was replaced by Devan Dubnyk.

"He's got an upper-body injury that we're going to have to reassess in the morning. I've been upfront with you guys (the media)," Oilers coach Dallas Eakins said after his team earned a 3-2 shootout win. "I'm not being upfront now. I've got to keep this under wraps until we check him out a little further."

Bryzgalov entered Sunday with a 2.24 goals-against average and .928 save percentage in three appearances.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
