A bad night gets even worse for the Buffalo Sabres, who as of this writing are losing 4 – 1 to Montreal in both teams’ season-openers. LW Evander Kane was injured tonight while chasing a loose puck into the corner, tweets John Vogl of the Buffalo News. Kane was chasing a puck into the corner along with Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin when the Sabres winger lost his footing and crashed heavily into the end boards.
The Sabres announced via Twitter that Kane had been taken to the hospital “for further evaluation and precautionary measures.”
Vogel reminds us that Kane recently underwent surgery on his left shoulder, implying tonight’s injury might be related to that earlier procedure.
More to come.
