Ducks Beat Sharks But Lose Selanne And Getzlaf

from Robyn Norwood of the LA Times,

It was a feel-good game until the third period, when two of the Ducks’ best players — Teemu Selanne and Ryan Getzlaf — left the ice with injuries within minutes of each other and didn’t return.

Selanne, who scored his 599th NHL goal earlier in the game and kept buzzing around the net for No. 600, slid hard into the boards after tripping on a stick on a scoring attempt with 18:16 left. After getting up very slowly — first to his hands and knees, then to one knee — he skated off unassisted and did not return.

A team official said Selanne was “shaken up” and suffered an upper-body injury.

Soon after Selanne was hurt, Getzlaf reinjured his left ankle, which he sprained before the Olympics. He later left the arena wearing a walking boot and is considered to be day-to-day.
