Habs’ Galchenyuk seen on crutches after OT loss to Blackhawks

Apr 9, 2014, 11:52 PM EDT

The Montreal Canadiens had a rough finish to a difficult night against the Chicago Blackhawks, and now there is concern for center Alex Galchenyuk.

The Habs gave up a late goal in regulation, then lost 3-2 in overtime. Making matters worse: Galchenyuk left the game in the first period with a lower-body injury and did not return.


Galchenyuk sustained a lower-body injury when he took a hit into the boards near the Montreal bench from Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw less than 30 seconds into the game. He took one more shift and headed to the dressing room.

    You hate to see anyone hurt but especially this late in the season with the playoffs next week. I do wonder how old friend montrealbbr will interpret this injury given his remarks on Seidenberg yesterday:

    I hope he comes back and then tears the ACL again in his first game. It would be called Karma!

      he’ll try to find a way to blame the Bruins. Chara has a very long reach, you know.
