Stephen Gionta left Saturday's game with a lower-body injury and did not return.

It happened in the third period. His status for Monday's game is unclear at this time so consider him day-to-day.

Stephen Gionta netted a shorthanded goal in his first shift back from an ankle injury on Wednesday.

It was Gionta's first goal of the 2013-14 campaign. He was out for 11 consecutive games with the ankle problem. "I was joking around saying my game went downhill after that goal," Gionta said. "You can skate as hard as you want and condition off the ice. It's definitely an adjustment getting back into games and getting back into that game shape. I just tried keeping it simple tonight to try to catch up with that."
