Hawks' Kane helped off ice; Senators break drought, get win

South Buffalo native Patrick Kane has been taken off the ice tonight in the United Center with an apparent left knee injury, suffered 46 seconds into the Blackhawks' game against Calgary when he was trying to avoid getting checked into the boards by Flames defenseman and ex-Sabre Cory Sarich. I was watching on the NHL Network and it didn't look good. The hit was almost out of camera range but Kane had no weight on his leg as he was being escorted down the tunnel. Here's the link to the Chicago Tribune's in-game updates.

In New York, meanwhile, the Ottawa Senators finally snapped their shutout string and got three goals from Chris Kelly in a 3-1 win over the Rangers. The Senators ended a three-game losing streak and a 202-minute, 57-second scoring drought that was a franchise record and included Saturday night's 1-0 shootout loss to the Sabres.

The Senators moved into ninth place in the East with 26 points. The Sabres and Carolina are tied with 25. Boston and Atlanta currently share the final playoff spots at 31.
