WEST POINT (CBSMiami/AP) — It’s never good when an injury happens before the season starts, but that is especially true in the final game of the preseason.
Top line winger Jonathan Huberdeau left with an apparent left leg injury during the Florida Panthers’ 4-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.
As Huberdeau turned away from a check behind New Jersey’s net, the skate of Devils center Sergey Kalinin appeared to come down on the back on Huberdeau’s left ankle. The Panthers have not offered an update on Huberdeau’s status.
Roberto Luongo made 25 saves and Jonathan Marchessault, Colton Sceviour, Aaron Ekblad and Vincent Trocheck scored for Florida.
Goaltending tandem Cory Schneider and Keith Kinkaid split time in goal for New Jersey. Schneider allowed all four Florida goals on 15 shots, while Kinkaid stopped all eight shots he faced.
Andy Greene and Michael Cammalleri scored for New Jersey.
