Senators' Gonchar to miss Wednesday's game

NHL.com @NHLdotcom

The Ottawa Senators will be without defenseman Sergei Gonchar for Wednesday night's game against the Montreal Canadiens due to what the team says is a lower-body injury.

Gonchar did not take part in Ottawa's optional skate Wednesday morning, but coach Paul MacLean made no mention of Gonchar's injury during his meeting with the media after the skate.

The 38-year-old defenseman played 25:05 and scored the winning goal with 2:30 remaining in regulation Tuesday night as the Senators beat Washington 3-2.

There is no word on how long Gonchar will be sidelined.
