Blues goalie Elliott leaves game with injury

Wednesday, 11.26.2014 / 1:37 AM / News

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- St. Louis Blues goalie Brian Elliott did not return after he left the game Tuesday against the Ottawa Senators because of a lower-body injury with 6:02 remaining in the second period.

Ottawa's Erik Condra tumbled over Elliott during a battle for the puck in the crease, and it appeared that Elliott's right leg buckled.

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock didn't have an update on Elliott after the game.

"We'll let you know [Wednesday]," he said. "Injuries are part of it. We'll see how long he's out for."

Canucks remember Quinn with video, 'Danny Boy'

Tuesday, 11.25.2014 / 11:23 PM / News

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks celebrated the life and legacy of former coach, general manager and president Pat Quinn with a moment of silence and singing of "Danny Boy" prior to playing the New Jersey Devils at Rogers Arena on Tuesday.

Quinn died at age 71 Sunday after a lengthy illness.

The Canucks will wear decals on their helmets with the initials "PQ" inside a four-leaf clover for the rest of the season, a fitting nod to a man known to many as "The Big Irishman," and there are plans to honor Quinn with a larger ceremony at a game later in the season.

After an emotional two days, singer Mark Donnelly hit all the right notes as a video tribute played on the scoreboard and the spotlight shone on Quinn's image in his spot in the Canucks' Ring of Honor.

Last season, his first with the Detroit Red Wings after spending his first 17 NHL seasons with the Ottawa Senators, Alfredsson tied for the Red Wings lead with 49 points in 68 games. He had hoped his back would be strong enough for him to return to the Red Wings for a second season, but he sustained a setback during informal skates before training camp.
