Leetch And Legace Suffer Knee Injuries

via the AP,
Brian Leetch injured his right knee in the second period of the Boston Bruins' 4-3 overtime loss to the New York Islanders and didn't return. Leetch limped out of Nassau Coliseum without the use of crutches, but said he was sore and was wearing a brace. The 37-year-old defenceman, in his first season with the Bruins, has never had a knee injury since entering the NHL with the New York Rangers in 1988. Manny Legace left the game with a slight knee sprain with 3:23 remaining in the first period after Chicago's Matthew Barnaby fell on him. Legace, who made eight saves, was expected to undergo a precautionary MRI on Wednesday.
