COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Blue Jackets goaltender Pascal Leclaire left Columbus' game against Washington after he was run into by two players late in the second period Tuesday night.
Leclaire, the NHL leader in shutouts with eight, was in the crease when he was hit hard by teammate Jan Hejda and Capitals left wing Quintin Laing at the 15:22 mark. Laing was assessed a minor penalty for goaltender interference on the play.
Leclaire ended up in the back of the net with both players atop him. He stayed on the ice for several minutes while he was attended to by a trainer, who massaged his neck as Leclaire grimaced. He was then helped off the ice.
Fredrik Norrena came out to replace him. The Capitals scored on the first shot Norrena faced, tying it at 2.
