Habs’ Petry hurt after blocking Garrison slap shot, returns for second period

Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry could barely make it to the Montreal bench after blocking a Jason Garrison slap shot off the inside part of his left leg in the first period.

Good news though for the Habs: Petry returned for the second period, though it will be interesting to see what impact that shot block has on the 27-year-old blue liner, who couldn’t put weight on his left leg as he slowly made his way to the bench.

Meanwhile, something else to keep an eye on: Steven Stamkos was seen favoring his left wrist after slightly bumping into Carey Price while on the forecheck. Like Petry, Stamkos stayed in the game and even had a scoring opportunity, which he was unable to capitalize on.
