The Leafs suffered an injury to their ranks last night against the Capitals. Forward Alexei Ponikarovsky (Box 19) left the game with a shoulder injury after being hit by Caps defenseman Steve Eminger (Box 22). Leafs head coach Paul Maurice figures that the injury will sideline Ponikarovsky for weeks rather than days.
Ponikarovsky was taken once in the Sheet.
