Comments Off on Senators beat Lightning in the shootout, Phillips leaves with upper-body injury

Ottawa Senators defenseman Chris Phillips left Monday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning in the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return, according to Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen.

Phillips’ last shift came late in the first period, after he was driven hard into the end boards by Lightning forward Ryan Malone.

Malone was assessed a minor penalty for boarding. The Senators managed to get a 4-3 shootout win over the Lightning, ending a six-game losing streak.

The Senators finish off their current three-game road trip on Tuesday, as they face the Florida Panthers. It doesn’t seem as though they’ll have Phillips in that game.
