Habs' Plekanec leaves game with injury @NHLdotcom
Thomas Plekanec, the Montreal Canadiens' leading scorer, left Tuesday night's game against Tampa Bay briefly with what appeared to be a knee injury.

With just over 3:00 remaining in the opening period, Plekanec appeared to be involved in a knee-on-knee collision with Lightning defenseman Mattias Ohlund after stepping over the blue line. He crumpled to the ice and had to be helped to the bench, then headed straight for the dressing room. 

There was no penalty called on the play. Plekanec returned to the game and set up a third-period goal in the Canadiens' 5-2 win.
