Sens C Duchene exits vs. Canadiens
Ottawa Senators center Matt Duchene did not return after suffering a lower-body injury during the second period of Thursday's home game against the Montreal Canadiens.
After serving a two-minute slashing penalty, Duchene left the penalty box at the 10:36 mark of the second period and raced down the ice after the puck, only to pull up in obvious discomfort after the play was over. Duchene didn't appear to absorb any contact on the play, though he was favoring his right leg or hip.
Duchene leads all Ottawa players with 34 points this season, with 22 of those points coming over his last 14 games. He ranks second on the team in both goals (12) and assists (22) over 29 games.
