Penguins' Jordan Staal injured against Canadiens, doesn't return to Game 1

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pittsburgh Penguins forward Jordan Staal injured his right leg during a second-period collision with Montreal defenceman P.K. Subban and didn't return to the second-round playoff game.

Staal, who scored in the opening period, came up limping on Friday night after Subban accidentally undercut him behind the net. Staal dragged himself to the bench, although he was able to skate off the ice a few minutes later for treatment in the locker-room.

Staal has never missed a game in four NHL seasons. He has played in 358 consecutive games, counting the playoffs, and 302 in a row during the season.
