Sharks' Braun leaves game with injury @NHLdotcom

In a bizarre injury, San Jose Sharks defenseman Justin Braun headed to the dressing room less than four minutes into Game 6 of the Western Conference Semifinal series against the Los Angeles Kings at HP Pavilion on Sunday night.

Braun appeared to suffer a leg injury while hopping over the boards for a shift. He did not appear to collide with another player.

The 26-year-old blueliner entered Sunday's action with one assist in nine Stanley Cup Playoff games. He was San Jose's seventh-round pick (No. 201) at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

San Jose trails 3-2 in the best-of-7 series.
