Galchenyuk will miss the first round of the playoffs

Alex Galchenyuk left last night’s game versus the Chicago Blackhawks just two shifts in to the game after taking a hit from Hawks forward Andrew Shaw and later from Marian Hossa.

According to reports Galchenyuk was seen leaving the game on crutches which may be serious depending on where he sustained the injury.

UPDATE: Alex Galchenyuk had a MRI today and met with the team doctors and has been ruled out for the first round of the playoffs. Galchenyuk injured his right knee in which the team is calling an MCL strain and will miss close to 3 weeks.
