CHICAGO -- Montreal Canadiens left wing Alex Galchenyuk sustained a lower-body injury in the first period against the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night and did not return.

Chicago won 3-2 in overtime.

Galchenyuk has 13 goals and 18 assists in 64 games with a minus-12 rating.

Quote of the Day
