Blue Jackets' Tyutin leaves game with injury
Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin left the game Monday night against the New York Rangers early in the second period following a hit from forward Chris Kreider.

NEW YORK -- Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin left the game Monday night against the New York Rangers following a hit from forward Chris Kreider.

SOG: 47 | +/-: -4
Handling the puck 21 seconds into the second period while facing the boards at the Rangers' blue line, Tyutin fell forward awkwardly when Kreider delivered a hit that caught the Russian defenseman off guard.

Kreider was assessed a five-minute boarding major on the play as well as a game misconduct. After spending some time down on the ice, Tyutin left the game and returned briefly for a 12-second shift before leaving again. He did not return after that.

After the game, Columbus coach Todd Richards didn't appear overly concerned about the defenseman's injury. But he admitted there wasn't much information to go on.

"As far as Tyuts, I don't know exactly [his status] yet. We'll find out more tomorrow," Richards said. "My understanding is it's more of a charley horse than anything else."

In 39 games this season, Tyutin has four goals and 17 points.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
