BUFFALO -- Buffalo Sabres forward Evander Kane left the game against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday in the third period with a left-leg injury.

Kane was injured at 10:25 after a check along the boards by Devils defenseman David Schlemko. Kane was down on the ice briefly and needed assistance to the locker room.

"I thought I just rubbed him out," Schlemko said. "I talked to the ref after and he said it looked like our legs just kind of locked. Looked like he grabbed his knee. Hopefully he's all right."

There was no update on Kane after the game, which New Jersey won 4-3.

"I don't have anything to give you of any idea but I don't know," Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said. "I don't have any indication. I just knew he wasn't going to come back in the game, but I don't have an indication for you at this time."
