DETROIT (AP) -Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar and left wing Ryan Malone were injured during the second period of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Detroit Red Wings.

Gonchar lost his balance and fell headfirst into the end boards while chasing a 2-on-1 Red Wings breakout. The veteran defenseman was helped up by trainers and taken to the locker room.

Not long after, Malone was struck in the face by a slap shot by Hal Gill. He rushed off the ice with blood dripping into a towel.

Both returned for the third period.
