Predators LW Sullivan hurts knee in collision, misses end of Game 3

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nashville forward Steve Sullivan sustained an apparent knee injury late in regulation of the Predators’ 3-2 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night and is listed as day to day.

Sullivan was hurt during a collision with Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis with 3:10 left in regulation, and didn’t return to the game.

Sullivan banged into Hamhuis along the boards, went down and then limped to the bench when the game was tied 2-2. He went immediately to the dressing room, and the Predators said he sustained an undisclosed lower body injury.

Nashville coach Barry Trotz didn’t have an update on Sullivan’s condition after the Predators’ loss that put them in a 2-1 hole in the best-of-seven Western Conference semifinal series.

Trotz expected to have more information about Sullivan on Wednesday. Game 4 of the series is Thursday night in Nashville.

Sullivan has two goals in the playoffs. Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo stopped him on a breakaway in the first period.
