CHICAGO (AP) -Buffalo center Chris Drury returned midway through the second period after leaving the Sabres' game against the Blackhawks when he was struck in the leg by a puck at 7:54 of the first period Wednesday night.
Drury was standing in front of the Chicago net during a Buffalo power play and was knocked down by Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith. After Drury got back to his feet, teammate Jaroslav Spacek's drive from the right point hit him in the leg.
Keith then cross-checked Drury after he was struck by the puck.
Drury, who has 22 goals and 19 assists in 41 games, hobbled off the ice with the help of two teammates and went directly to the Sabres' dressing room.
