Carolina's Eric Staal leaves game against Penguins with upper-body injury

RALEIGH, N.C. - Carolina Hurricanes captain Eric Staal sustained an upper-body injury during the second period of Friday night's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins and did not return.

Staal was levelled by a check from the side from Penguins defenceman Matt Niskanen and lay on the ice for a short time before skating to the Hurricanes' bench and immediately heading to the dressing room.

Staal, who had an assist on Erik Cole's goal in the second period, has 27 goals and 32 assists on the season.
