Hurricanes captain Staal leaves game with injury @NHLdotcom

Carolina Hurricanes captain Eric Staal left the game Saturday night against the New York Islanders with a lower-body injury and did not return.

Staal left the ice in the second period after playing 11 shifts and seeing 9:48 of ice time.

Staal had five points (one goal) in the previous two games.

It is unknown if he will be able to play Sunday against the Nashville Predators. He has missed one game over the past three seasons.

"He'll get assessed tonight and see if he's ready to go tomorrow," coach Kirk Muller said.
