Montreal’s Shea Weber Out With Lower-Body Injury

With the Montreal Canadiens chasing down the playoffs, another blow came when captain Shea Weber was injured in Tuesday’s game against the Devils. Weber will go on injured reserve with a lower-body injury and is expected to miss at least a week.

The Canadiens, having battled injuries all season, have gone 7-3 in their last 10 games, placing themselves within eight points of the second wild card in the East.

But Weber has proved his worth as a leader, representing Montreal at the All-Star Game and winning the hardest shot contest for the third time. He has 13 goals and 21 assists this season.

On track for his best season as a Canadien with 51 points, Weber’s number will take a hit, but the team will suffer more.

Montreal was able to secure the win Tuesday against the Devils, taking them in a shootout. Weber’s injury came late in the third when he blocked a shot from Wayne Simmonds. He finished the game in regulation time, but would not play the remainder of the game.

The Canadiens will play Toronto tonight night at 7:00 p.m. ET in Montreal as they look to keep their playoff hopes alive with their captain on the sidelines.
