Gonchar to be re-evaluated in the morning
Defenseman Sergei Gonchar suffered a right knee injury in the first period of Friday’s game on a knee-to-knee hit by Capitals star forward Alexander Ovechkin.
Gonchar immediately left the game and did not return. There are a ton of a rumors out there right now but the growing consensus is that the injury could be a minor MCL injury and there won’t be any word on the extent of the injury until atleast the morning when Gonchar gets re-evaluated.
