BOSTON -- Buffalo Sabres forward Cody Hodgson did not return to the game Thursday against the Boston Bruins after leaving with an upper-body injury.

"It could be a little while," Sabres interim coach Ted Nolan said about Hodgson. "We'll get the doctor's report after this."

Hodgson played 4:30 in six shifts in the first period at TD Garden.

Hodgson has 19 points (eight goals) in 33 games this season. He was playing for the first time since Dec. 10, after missing two games with a lower-body injury.

Quote of the Day

He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.
